Hey all, recently changed things around a little in my routine going from 9 sets for biceps and 12 for triceps to 6 for both.
My biceps and triceps day looks like this:
2-4 sets of close grip push-ups to warm-up the elbows.
2 sets of PJR ,reverse grip.Reverse grip is eaiser on the elbow and gets some blood into the joints before i move on to the other less elbow friendly triceps exercises.
2 sets of one at a time standing db extension
2 sets of PJR pullover with ezbar
2 sets of pinwheel curls
2 sets of incline curls
2 sets of ez bar curls
I do around 8-10 reps on the first set then i ram up so that i get to 5-7 reps in the 2nd set.Doing a pyramid.
The reason i lowered the volume is to progress faster in weights as doing 9-12 sets before didn't let me move up as fast and i figured if curling and doing extensions with this weight will never get me big arms.
My question is 6 sets for each biceps and triceps enough? or was the past approach better?
