Was just thinking about my arm training.
When i train arms i usually just go 1 set rest 1 min do next set and so forth.
I have never done,drop sets,supersets,21’s,run the rack etc etc.
Now at 249 pounds and arms 18.25 inch im thinking and looking at my arms thinking they should be a little bigger for my weight and height,im 6’4
Now i hit squats and deads heavy and my arms grew from them,overall weight increase gives me bigger arms.But i was wondering about doing things like supersets and all those i mentioned just to try something different.
How has the above worked for u guys for increasing arm size?
I think you need to accept that you will have to gain more weight. 250lbs at 6’4" isn’t exactly all that filled out. I have noticed about 15-20lbs of total body weight gain needed for every inch on my arms. You can’t sit at 250lbs and expect them to get much larger unless your body fat has somehow dropped substantially. I don’t do 21’s or drop sets for my arms. They grow fine doing 3 exercises, using about 3-4 sets each. Honestly, if you can’t curl more than a 70lbs dumbbell in each hand, do you really expect them to grow much more? Where is your strength level at on that exercise?[/quote]
Yeah u pretty much guessed it,i use 75 pounders for dumbell curls.
I know that i have to gain more weight,that part i worked out,but the point of my thread really was asking if supersets ,21’s and all those other methods have any advantage over say just stadard barell curls for growth.
Thanks for your tips anyway.
