WTF! bicep 1/4 inch smaller
ok here´s what happened.. my bicep measurement has been exactly 15.16in (cold) for bout 1 month and i want to reach 16in so bad that i tried one of the bicep routines posted by someone (wount mention who).. this consists of many excercises whitch you superset with a short rest intervall.. anyway.. after trying this my biceps were extremely sore and after measuring 4,5 and 6 days after my bi´s measured only 14.96in... has this happened to anyone? does anyone know why this happened?? any suggestions on how to get the measurement up again??
*i should mention that i got a sufficient amount of protein and carbs and my diet was good
*i did the "one day arm cure" 1 month ago and after that my biceps have been very sore after every arm workout
if i missed anything important just ask..
thnx in advance

maby you are overtraining biceps.
Btw if you want your arms to grow hit the triceps the hardest. Try a wsb routine, if that doesnt put meat on your tri's nothing will

Many... superset and short interval are all good clues for overtraining.
Want mass, go back to the basics.

Imo biceps grows best from heavy back training anyway with a biceps exercise tossed into the mix everynow and then.

Totally agree. Narrow grip weighted pull-up with a pause at the top make my biceps scream. It is like doing a negative with 280 pounds!
