working out on STEROIDS
anyone see the article im muscle mag on how to put 1 inch on arms.
well heres a breakdown on it.
they are saying to do 4 sets of each,hammer curls,preacher curls,seated dumbell curls,straitbar,pulldown cable for tris,rope for tris,v-bar,forarm curls,etc... they suggest doing these all 3 days a wk.mon,wen,fri.
ive been only working my arm(all of those) one day a wk.
is there any bearing on what the article says or is it too much.

Personally, I feel that is WAY too much. I have found that lowering my training volumn has increased me size. I usually do 16-20 sets per body part per week. I have since cut that back to 12-15, and have gotten better results.

The only thing i'd add is different types of exercises affect everyone differently. The trick (for everyone) is to constantly shock the muscles. For me once a week does just fine, when i'm on twice a week. But never more. For others its different. More or less its a trial and error thing, till you find out what works best

yea for adding one inch on the arms, it may work but only cause your arms are soooo god damn overtrained, they are swollon out of porpotion. Not a good way to build a solid foundation. Also suppized there wasnt anything about a tri workout to get the arms 1" bigger..FOOLISH

it will work since you haven't been doing it up to this point. I'd do it, then go back to what you normally do... I think you will shock them and get growth. I would definitely apply this while "on." good luck plates.

IMO it's too much. However, not everyone is the same. I train each bodypart 3X every 2 weeks; and some 1 a week guys will say that's too much. If you try it out just beware of exhaustion symptoms, b/c then you'll know if it's too much for you.

I thought the rule of thumb, was you need to gain 10 pounds of LBM to add one inch to your arms. I think it would be a good shock to the muscles, but I wouldn't do it for more 2 weeks, maybe 3.

4 Plates, dont listen to anyone on this. If you are up to it go for it. I did it in the summer of 2000 and it totally worked. I dont know if it was the same workout but it was in the March/April issue of PUMP no. 107. It consisted of bi/tri (push/pull) supersets with the same exercises. 10 arm workouts in 30 days!

My arms got extremely hard, large, and very strong. It taxes your body though. I did it on nothing but ripped fuel and protein. If you are an endomorph you will get huge. If not I probably would stay away from it. I am no genetic freak, it worked for both my workout partner and me. Capped off with 90lbs dumbel curls (8 reps each) and 185 on straight bar for 8 reps. It was like you are 15 and working out for the first time with this new type of soreness. I could not touch that weight without that type of overtraining. I may feel different than rest but everyone is different and my body grows and looks the best with mad overtraining. Before this I worked out for about 5 years with slow gains in both growth and strength on my arms. I cannot even imagine how sweet this workout would be on AS. Also you will need a ton of sleep and total dedication for a whole month.

Three days a week is incredible. However, i can see it as a shcok routine but it is def too much IMO.
Twice a week at that routine would be suffecient
My arms only grow with low reps, heavy weight. Everybody is different though.

Take 2 weeks off from bicep training, then go balls to the wall on Day 15...your freakin bi's will be pumped from rep 3 on thru out your workout and they WILL be sore like 5 days. I just did this, didnt even use heavy weight when I came back...but shit...lovin the soreness. Soreness just went away today..(Tuesday) . Worked biceps last Thurs. Weren't that sore on friday, saturday it was killer, sunday i couldnt even flex them, monday it just hurt when i flexed them, and now tuesday...they are back to their veiny selves.
