Hey, I was curious how many people here do direct arm work? I havent done any direct arm work in a few weeks and i swear my arms feel bigger than before......wierd.
Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.
Don't hate the player. Hate the game.
5-6 sets of direct bicep work, 5-6 sets of direct tricep work a week (two exercises for each, 6-12 reps)
i do, twice a week

After working back (which works the biceps anyway) I do one set of hammer curls.
After working chest (which works the triceps anyway) I do one set of either dips or cable extensions.

This is pretty much what I do. On back days I finish with one set of BB or DB curls. On chest days I finish with one set of dips or cable extensions. I've had more noticeable growth on my triceps, than on any other body part (this was one of my weakest areas when I started working out).

I don't, i have in the past and have actually noticed more progress without the extra work.

once a week, maybe 8-10 sets total.
I work them once a week 2-3 sets for bis and 2-3 sets for tris.
once a week, about 10-12 sets
If I'm in the mood, I'll do 2-3 sets.

I do Dips which targets the tris but no Isolations on Bicep or Triceps. I bulked 12lbs and gained 1/2" on my arms without no direct arm work.
No direct work for Tris or Bis. I only do DB Bench, Dips, Chins and Seated Pulley Rows and my arms are quite large doing 350lb(BW+125) Dips.
generally no. Maybe every other week I will do a couple sets of biceps.

I'll do 2-4 sets of various curls at the end of my back day, once a week. Other than that, it's all compound work for my arms.
Very rarely. Maybe a couple sets for tri's and bi's once a month.
quidquid Latine dictum sit altum videtur
2 sets of BB curls and 2 sets of DB curls, done after my back workout.
I do close grip bench and dips for tris, but those really arent isolating the tris as much as the curls isolate the bis.
I havnt done bicep work but maybe 3 times in the last few years lol
One a week... day 3 of WBB1
The dips and bench on day 1 hit the triceps a little I guess and the rows hit the biceps a little but it's not "direct arm work".
I do 5 sets for bi's and 6 sets for tri's once a week..
