I am having trouble gaining mass in my biceps. It seems as if I have always had trouble putting on mass in my biceps, but now it is really starting to piss me off.
Here are the exercises I do, usually picking three-four exercise per workout, with triceps on the same day:
Preacher Curl: Dumbbell Iso, Ez Barr, cable (3 or 4 x10) or (15, 12, 8, 8, 6)
Standing Barbell Curl (15, 12, 8, 8, 6)
Incline alternating curls- Twisting at the top. (3 or 4 x10)
Hammer Curls (3 or 4 x10)
(I might throw some rope curls in there somewhere, if I feel bored, or do standing preachers using an incline bench to toss things up a bit- but I don't do either on a regular basis)
(I do reverse curls for forearms- switching between cable, ez, and straight bar.)
I seem to plateau easily, and can't put on any size in my biceps. I try to stick to good form, but it seems vanity gets the best of me sometimes, and I cheat a little too much. This is not a problem, as I don't do it often, and if ever on my last set of heavy.
What else should i focus on, or what other exercises should I do. I find that I can't increase weight. Should i try to get smaller magnetic weights so that I can start making increases even if they are minor (weights in my gym start at 2.5lbs)
Am i over training? I am working the bicep wrong?
I am also contemplating purchasing an arm blaster-- worth the money?
Any suggestions would be helpful. I would like to start gaining some much needed mass on my arms.
