    saturday- calves and abs along with some cardio and stretching
    15-20 minutes of moderate intensity cardio
    5-6 sets of calf raises
    4-5 sets of seated calf raises


    my diet is awesome, i eat 12-14 eggs a day( only about 5 or 6 are yolks) 1 can of tuna, rice, oats, potatoes, peanut butter, olive oil, whole milk, turkey, weight gainer, protein powderm, and plenty of water.

    my supplements are kre alkalyn, bcaa, multivitamin, fish oil, glutamine peptides, and cyto gainer,

    i get about 7 hours of sleep a night so that is no concern.

    my question pertains to arms, they just seem to be laggin im thinking of doing my upper body earlier in the day and at night i leave the curls and extensions so i can focus on those more? would that be a bad thing>?

    dips and chins are missing compound movements .. tired they work good for arms .. or find a big hill and go up it with a wheelchair better than gym workout atleast for the arms

    that is way too much volume for a upper/lower routine 2x's a week. How many calories does your "awesome" diet contain.

    you need to ditch the skullcrushers for close-grip bench, and you might wanna try switching db curl with regular ez bar curl. You might also be overtraining with the 2 time per body part a week routine.

    Gabrielle brings up a couple of good points.

    Triceps-close grip bench & weighted dips
    biceps-chins, barbell or ez barl curls(heavy)
