Need more info on your workout, BF and diet....it could be you are overtraining or your not getting enough "good food".....or both.....

like just said...post more info. how often are you training bis? are you training them with another muscle group? post this info, and what your arm workout looks like now, so we can better assess that stuff...

I agree with Bigboy. Very, very rarely will I do the same workout two weeks in a row. If I do that, then I definately do not do it for a third. It keeps the muscle guessing and for me it keeps me excited to go to the gym. Before my workouts, I get pumped up thinking about what I am going to do that day. There are just too many exercises out there for me to stick with one routine. I guess it is my way of whoring around.

i'd add in some incline curls and some barbell curls... boy do i love some incline curls, when i first started doing them i felt a pump/strech in my biceps like never before. i try to go heavy on back day so i really dont do too much for biceps. hope that helps a little

i do my biceps and tris once a week and then 4 days later i work out my back and chest i get great pumps and i dont seem to over train my muscle and it keeps on growing. Heh but anywho just do other guys do later man
Put your bis and tris threw failure ONCE a week this will keep em growing too

Alright, since on one touched on it I will. You can train your biceps all you want but there is a genetic limit. Sorry to say, but like the calves, the biceps will hit a genetic peak and there is nothing you can do to really help it. I had a nice peak when I was 15 and barely worked them out. While my friends today can't even match what I had then. It is all genetics and busting your ass in the gym sometimes just won't help.

thnx 50%animal.. back with chest has to be effective, never tested it before so ill give it a go
as for 50%Natural post.. yeah im sure everyone has their genetic limit.. i hope i havn´t reached it yet..
if anyone has more suggestions of routines feel free to write!

thnx chrisAdams does the rope work out for anyone?
btw..50%animal when working out chest with back, dont you find it tuff to do deadlifts AND bench press the same day?
01-14-2004, 03:29 PM #16
yeah i like the rope as a variation of the hammer curl. for some reason i can always pull out a few more reps with those.
