    why my biceps get sore?????????

    i am having a problem doing biceps the day after shoulders... for some reason my bi's get bad sore after a shoulder workout. i guess b/c i do traps with shoulders and go heavy. i can't even work bi's and tri's today b/c i'm to sore.. what do i do?

    What does your workout routine look like cuurently and i'll see if i can rearrange it a little. Such as what muscle group on what days...Consider yourself lucky though. My biceps are hard to get sore.

    Using what you posted why don't you try this...
    day1 Chest/Back
    day2 off
    day3 shoulders
    day4 off
    day5 legs
    day6 bis/tris
    day7 off
    Or something similar...and also i do not recommend doing chest and back on the same day. Those muscles are too large to be worked together IMO, especially back...

    Are you doing Upright Rows, as they could be the culprit~

    You are getting elbow flexion under load while doing them. You are basically curling in a different plane. Leave them out for a week and see if your bi's are sore, I doubt if they will be.
