I switched my workout from 4 exercises to 3, and I feel that by doing this I can slow everything down, and go a little heavier for that tighter contraction. I am going to keep it at this for a while and see if there are any improvements.
Like a few of the guys here I work my bis with my back routine. I'll do either ez curls or bb curls - 2 sets 12 reps each.
DAMN! Either your intensity is way too low and your not going to failure or you posess stellar recuperative abilities. I don't require anymore than 8 or nine sets total, once a week for bi's. They're a muscular 19" so I know I'm doing something right.
Are you natural or juiced?
I do 2 Rest/Pause sets when doing bi's. Hammer Curls DB/cable and Wide-Grip BB curls/Preacher curls. I do it twice a week so I switch between them. I've been trying to focus more on low volume and I'm tellin yeah it really feels good actually better then before when I was doing 9-12 sets on my bi's. I just do a really good warm-up and stretch and go into my working set.
I generally do 3 excercises for biceps
standing barbell or preacher curl for 5 sets
concentration curls or dumbell preacher curls for 3 sets
hammer curls for 3 sets
Call me crazy, but I do bis after chest, and tris after back. I'm having awesome results and making great gains, so I'm sticking with it.
Currently doing 3 exercises, 4 sets each. Standing DB curls, incline curls, and on alternating workouts switch between preacher or isolation curls.
2 maybe 3. voted 2
I do anywhere from 2-4 so I voted 3. Currently in the 2 or 3 mode depending on how I am feeling or how quickly I am getting fatigued. Usually I start heavy with standing BB curls, then move to preacher or isolation DB curls. Sometimes I'm done there. If not I'll hit a couple sets of hammer curls or cable curls with the rope. Unfortunetly a couple weeks ago when I was doing isolation curls on the heavy side of things I felt a hot, burning pain on the inside of my elbow joint. My first reaction was tendon strain or worst case scenario, a tear so I imediately stopped bi's for the day then starting the next week started of very light then have been slowly upping the wieght back to what it was before but on a "how it feels" basis. Anyone else ever had an issue similar?
yeah i'm beginning to think that is probably it. i just don't want to end up having to go to the doctor about it. i hate hospitals. i know it's ignorant but they just never have good news.
4 exercises 3 sets ea, very heavy weight!

If I have an "arms day" I usually do 3 but I'm currently on a horizontal push/pull / vertical push/pull routine and I just do one movement at the end for a couple sets.
depending on whether its workout A, B or C ill do either wide grip overhand pullups or bent over rows.
I throw in a few sets of isolation barbell curls once a week.
I've been trying a superset of Bi's/Tri's something like:
Tri Push Down/Standing EZ-bar Curl
Skull Crushers/Preacher Curl
Dip Machine/Alt DB Curl
(1)21 Gun Salute at the end.
Seems to be working well. I voted 4, usually do 3-4
in my opinion every body part gets the same amount of attention no matter what ppl think. if its bicept day then be it. only my opinion though.
i workout top of bicept bottom of bicept, straightbar, then preacher. then move on to my second bodypart of the day
