Strength Regresses In Biceps..
Pretty weird, all my lifts steadily improve but over the past 3 months my bicep strength has just deteriorated..and trust me with the 8 sets I only do for them, it can't be overtraining. I really don't understand this sh!t and I got so pissed today after barely being able to do 25's i threw the weights...This is really frustrating man and I don't udnerstand it. Any tips?

I find that mixing up my workouts helps a lot. Some weeks I work back + biceps and some weeks I work shoulders, triceps and biceps. I can curl 37.5kg (~80lbs.) dumbbells for reps now. Earlier this year I was only curling 30kg(~66lbs.) dbs.

well theres ur problem, training bis twice in 3 days!!! If u train biceps hard on wednesday, then train back hard on friday, u are majorly overtraining ur biceps, and im guessing the overtraining has caught up on u. I had this same problem in the past, i cared more about arm development that nethin else, so woteva happened i had to have an arm day, but since then ive realised overtraining is very difficult to avoid if u have an arm day, becoz of the constant overlaps. I suggest u try a different approach altogether for example
sun - rest
Mon - Back Bis
Tuesday - Chest tris
Wed - rest
Thurs - legs
sat - rest
Imo this wud make overtraining far more unlikely, ne probs, gime a pm.

umm even on the gear I do only 5-6 sets. I've never done more than 6 sets of any exercise.

A similar thing happened to me once except with pecs, I was on a cutting diet at the time and I found that was the problem... not enough food. Double check your intake maybe.
