Would doing curls everyday help or hurt my biceps to grow????
i know this question sounds a little crazy, but im not sure about it....first off, i am on cycle right now if you want to check out my cycle here is the link: http://forums.anabolicreview.com/sho...d.php?t=107756 .....here comes the real question...in my apartment, i have 45lb dumbells....if i did 3 or four sets a day (probably for reps of 12) would this help me to grow, or hurt me...would my bicep workout not "shock" the muscle as much if i work it everyday....my arms are lagging, and i need help with them...any advice is appreciated
i hope you all understand my question, i know its a little confusing

That would hurt your development my friend. Not a good idea. Post your current arm workout and we might make some changes for ya!!
Exercises, sets, reps, frequency

Bicep workout: (I work back and bi's on the same day....back first)
1 warmup set straight bar curls (about 12 reps)
3 sets heavy straight bar curls 6-8 reps
3 sets hammer curls, 10 reps
3 sets 1-arm cable curl, 10 reps
usually 2 sets concentration curls, 8 reps
i feel like i have a good tricep workout....my tris have been growing, and they are not lagging as much as my bi's.....any help is appreciated, and remember i dont mind working hard, espicially now that im on cycle---its really time for my arms to grow....thanks bro's
if you need my tri workout, i can post that as well...and please check out the link above that has some pictures on it

For supercompensation is to occur you must follow these steps: train, recovery, then growth...

Working arms to a bloody mess...Originally Posted by big swoll
If you got the heart to really subject your arms to some brutal training - try an EDT type method. Never have I experienced such a great pump, and soreness days later, in my arms then what I get using this method. Even doing Holisitc-type training pails in comparison...
Here is how I apply the Charles Stanley method every other arm day - or every third... it leaves you feeling like someone beat you with a bat from your upper arms down to your forearms... so don't do it too often - dependent on your training level...
You want to keep the reps at about 10-15 - so adjust the load as you go. But the first 5 minutes of each should be relatively easy.
Superset A, 20 minutes (not 10... not 15 - 20 mikes!)
[A-1] Standing Barbell Curls, around 10 reps
[A-2] Rope Tricep Extensions, around 12-15 reps
Rest 10 minutes - or once the swelling goes down... then...
Superset B, another 20 minutes
[B-1] Tricep Cambered Extensions, around 10 reps
[B-2] Reverse Grip Cambered Curls, around 12-15 reps
If someone asks you to work in while you are dripping with sweat going from one station to the next - knock his ass on the floor! People ask me. "How many sets you have left?" My response is something like, "... about 10 more mikes brah!" Then they leave you alone... if they pursue, "Can I work in?" Then I say, "If you can keep up!" And then you trample over them!

thanks warrior, i am going to try that every other arm workout for a while and see if i like the results....a few quick questions for ya....first, it may be a stupid question, but is a mike a minute??? and secondly, while im doing superset either a or b, should there be any rest period between exercise a-1, and a-2....or should i go directly from a-1 to a-2....lastly, im not familar with the terminology cambered....could you explain to me what exactly those exercises are, or which bar i use...thanks bro....you have been a ton of help....lucky for me, tommorow is my arm day....so i'll let ya know how it goes

bro dont take this as a flame, but if your asking this, you dont need to be taking anything even remotely close to aas yet.

i wasn't asking if i could do a bicep workout every day...i was asking if it would hurt me to screw around and do a few sets of curls at night, and just get a lil pump...i know you must give yourself time to rest if you want to grow

Based on your questions you might now be ready for this yet... you never really included any personal stats... myself and my workout partner are pretty big and have been training for years - and this kicks our asses. I last did this routine 2 days ago and today my arms feel like they have 5cc's of Mexican prop in them... it's a bit brutal. Maybe do this like once or twice a month and then a POF type routine the other times you do arms... IMO...

BTW - by POF, I mean Position of Flexion. Use an explosive barbell movement where you move heavy weights (like Barbell Curls 2-0-2) then a rythmic Dumbell movement (like Incline Dumbell Curls, 3-0-2) the maybe something for good continous tension (like Concentration Curls)... or omit the last one in favor for some forearm training in the same session...
