So… I’ve been following adage of “don’t waste time on minor movements such as curls and instead, focus on the complex movement such as bench etc.” for a while now.
While I can’t complain too much since even though I don’t do curls, I am still able to curl 135lbs just for shits and giggles (I surprised myself) so I know in terms of strength, I am good to go even on my smaller muscles.
The thing is, my arms aren’t cut up at all. They are not very well defined. I’ve been on programs (my past 4 or 5) which don’t specify working arms…
I am just kind of torn between working complex movements and wanting to get more defined arms. What do you guys do? Should I just tack on a few sets of arm workouts at the end of whatever program I am working on? How do you manage to sneak in these minor movements in your workouts?
