ok me and my "coach" had a lil discussion the other day and I felt like asking you guys on this one cuz I'm not really sure what to believe..this was about keeping or maybe gaining a lil size on the arms
For the past 11 months I've been working my bi's and tri's once directly and once indirectly during a every week..meaning mondays was my biceps and chest day (tricpes indirectly), friday was my back (biceps indirectly) and triceps day.
The other day he told me I should go over to working my tri's together with my chest on mondays, to give the tri's a killer workout once a week, and rest'em for the rest of the week. The same goes for biceps, work them together with back and give them a killer workout. Now, he said clearly it would give me major results switching over to that routine, but for some reason I can't believe removing the indirect sessions targeting the tri's and bi's during the week will improve my results.
I already hear some of you say less is more..is it true in this case though?
The routine is as follows: 4 heavy exercises on chest (every set to failure) every set 8 - 10 reps, then 2 really heavy sets on tri's right after that. The same goes for back on fridays. 4 heavy exercises on back (every set to failure) every set 8 - 10 reps, then 2 really heavy sets on bi's right after that.
Or is the traditional way of working bi's and tri's heavy the same day a better routine to gain size?
What do you guys think? good or bad routine to gain arm size?
