What's your current routine for said groups? They generally don't need as much attention as you think they do as they are secondary muscles.M.Ed. Ex Phys

Reduce the volume and add in a small session where you make up the volume. Increased frequency over volume, IMO.

I train bis with back, and chest with tris, but also hit arms after shoulders.
On back/bi or chest/tri days where the arm muscle is already pre-exhausted I usually train with higher volume. It's hard to do heavy, heavy curls after rowing your ass off, so I get done with back and then do 5-7 sets with 12-20 reps for the bicep. Same applies for triceps following chest.
On shoulders day, though, I train arms heavy. 6-8 reps generally and between the two sessions per week my arms are right where I want them. (Okay, they could always be bigger haha)
Try it out!
Go hard. Go heavy. Never stop.

Throw in arms every other cycle through your lifts. I like doing little accessory days because otherwise I feel like my body is falling apart from overworking. A lot of guys actually overtrain their biceps especially so you want to lookout for that.
