I’m currently happy with my programme, but I feel my arms are lagging mainly because I stuck to the advice of doing big compound lifts and avoiding any isolation work. I now realise this is a bit dumb.
So, I want to add in some extra work. I workout 3-4 times a week. My plan is to do (every workout):
4 sets of 7 pullups
4 sets of 7 bicep isolation machine
4 sets of 10 dips
I just want to do them when I feel like it, i.e. 1 set of pullups when I walk past the bar and then another set later (same with dips etc…).
I feel that these muscle group recover much faster than any other so I think I can deal with the extra volume. I very rarely feel any aching after my workouts.
What do you think?
I already do direct bicep and tricep workout on the same day as my back day and my shoulder day. Basically what I meant was, would it be counter productive to do extra arm work every day if I can deal with the recovery?
