    Hi.

    I have this arm routine and he has put it out like so…

    1. Barbell curl
    1. Close grip bench press

    2. Cable curl
    2. Cable Press down

    Would that be the order to do exercises in, or would you do biceps first, then triceps? Im not sure as I’ve never trained bis/tris in the same session.

    Well mine at the moment goes like this.

    – Barbell curl
    – Dumbell hammer curls
    – Cable preacher curls
    – O/Head dumbell press
    – Lying skull crushers
    – Close grip bench
    – Dips

    And if I feel like my Bi’s have deflated a little then I throw in 1 set of 21’s just to walk out with a serious pump.

    I like to train Bi’s first purely because they need all of my attention when i work them. Next month i might change it around just for something different, so all in all i don’t think it really matters.

    One thing that does matter is how much you train them, and I don’t think that your program is enough.

    Perhaps, but only I know how many sets im doing and the frequency.

    So you dont think it matters if i go in that order? Because im pretty sure thats what he wanted. If i can see that its really bad, obviously ill change it.

    You dont think all those exercises is too much? how many sets/reps per exercise if u dont mind me asking

    IMHO

    Chins
    barbell curl

    Cable pulls larry scott style
    Dips

    85%1rm 5-6 sets low reps

    I don’t think it’s to much, but many would I guess, as they have done since i started posting my workouts here.

    At the moment I’m doing the 5 x 5 thing so it could be a little different than what you are looking for.

    But before that I was doing as follows:

    – Barbell curl = 15,12,12,10
    – Dumbell hammer curls = 16,16,10,10
    – Cable preacher curls =12,12,10
    – O/Head dumbell press = 16,16,12,12
    – Lying skull crushers = 12,12 ,10
    – Close grip bench = 3 x 10
    – Dips = 4 x 10

    And then before that I used the same program and just had the same stes but lower reps.

    By the way who is ‘HE’? Is this your alter ego?

    As far as the order…stay with bi’s then move on to tri’s and vice versa. The only way I see what you are doing now could be benificial in that order would be if you superset them in pairs.

    UB at the end of the day you are the one lifting the weights. If this program feels good (I’m assuming you have already done it) then stick with it. These are just MY opinions.

    replace your barbell curl with underhand weighted chinups
    replace the close grip bench press with weighted dips

    Lying incline curls is the only bi exercise that stretches your bicep at the bottom postion. Larry Scott swore by them.
    A must for all bicep workouts.

    Do what ever is weaker/smaller first. If there equal, alternate between them each workout.

    i feel wierd when i do this on in the gym…i do it when its empty though…it just looks so funny

    also if you do variations , add in hammers as Kinmassive suggested they are the bomb.

    I’m replacing the close grip benching for vertical dips (focusing on tris)
    underhand chins don’t work for me (maybe i do them wrong), so the curls stay for now.

    If you find it hard to do the chins at first why not do as much as you can…and then jump on a lat machine and do the same movement in a pull down…sooner or later you will be able to finish your chins sets and then add weight.

    IMHO

    The best way to improve your chins is to chin IMO. My training partner could not do 1 when he first started. He does them every session now, slowly building it up. At the moment he can do 4, followed by 2-3 lots of 3, then some doubles & singles etc. Hasn’t taken him long to get there, and he is now improving every session.

    Why does it look funny? And if it does, who the hell cares. just set up the incline bench as if you were going to do incline dumbell presses and do curls instead. fucking awesome excersize. Larry Scott loved them.

    how much incline do I need?

    according to swiz i would do them last right
