    Am I overworking

    I usually do biceps and triceps on the same day. I usually do different exercises for each and I do 9 sets of each exercise ( 3 sets of 10 ) at one weight, increase weight and do another 3 sets of 10, and increase weight and do last 3 sets of 10. Am i over working ? I am not gaining in strength anymore and seem to fatigue faster now then before.

    What is the rule for increasing weight during sets ? Do I do 4 sets of 10 reps and increase weight with each set ?

    How much do you squat?

    Increase weight whenever and however you can from session to session.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
