Thanks for replying, I'll get some pics as soon as my flatmate comes home.
Apologies if I posted in the wrong forum subsection; my ultimate goal is
as yet undecided; all I wanted/want to do is improve the appearance of my
phisique, and have some tangible strength to show for it.
Here is 9 days of eating that I recorded a month ago, and have been eating
the same or similar foods since I did this. Unfortunately I simply dont
have the time/circumstances to record everything I eat...
If you cba with that I just worked out

I definitely feel 'pump' (if such a thing is at all meaningful) when I work
out my arms, more so than any other part of my body, if this is what you are
referring to? I do try and pause at the top/bottom or reps for a second or
two to really feel the bicep/tricep.
My reference to 'accessory' exercies was not in reference to arms, more
in the vein of I perform bench/military/squats/deads at 100% low reps,
and the following exercises at higher repitions, sorry for confusion.
This also leads me to ask, what are the 'big' arm exercises then? As you
can see, I was starting with Barbell Curls and Tricep pushdowns for arms,
albeit recenty this was with high reps.
In line with what I mentioned to Tatsu...in complete honestly leg appearance
means little if anything to me at all; I'd like to be able to squat 140.
What exactly would you recommend that I do?
Add in sets of bis/tris to arms/legs/back days? If so, if you could recommend how many and when that'd be great.
Should I move arms to earlier in the week?
Go back to low rep heavy weight?
Start out on a new split routine focussing on arms?
Thanks for your help!
