    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.

    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

    i agree with homeboy above. and the tri's are a way bigger muscle than the tiny little bicep. (or in my case HUGE bicep but the tri still takes up most of the arm. it's a little pretty face) but for all you other tiny people with tiny biceps which is everybody compared to me i can see your dilemma. haha
