It imply exciting necessarily promotion from 13106 collie RAF CERES both of these techniques into your biceps workout. Use three-second descents for biceps. Three-second descents work better on certain exercises than others, depending on the bodypart. For biceps, it works on nearly everything. Here are some general guidelines for applying this technique to your biceps training. 't overdo these! As you know, the eccentric portion of the lift is where a lot of the muscle damage is created. Couple that with the fact that biceps are a small muscle group and you have a recipe for overtraining if you perform this on all sets. I'd suggest using three-second descents on one exercise or on one set of each exercise personal favorite method is with a basic exercise like barbell or dumbbell curls at the end of a workout, when I already have a great biceps pump. You won't be able to use as much weight, but you'll feel the exercise like never before. Watch the video below to how I do these with EZ Bar curls: Use heavy negatives on the dip machine for triceps. I absolutely doing these. It's a great, safe way to overload your triceps with heavy weight. the video below for how I do dip machine negatives: Use forceful contractions liberally. For some bodyparts and exercises I like constant tension, rest pauses, etc. With biceps and triceps, I believe that much of the work should include a very forceful squeeze at the end of each rep. Try to use this technique more the beginning to middle of your biceps workout and the beginning of your triceps workout. The hard flex drive blood into the muscle, further enhancing the three-second descents or heavy negatives you'll do down the road. Intuitively, I think this technique works better with rep ranges of 6, as opposed to say, 12. It's similar to performing a concentration curl with a really light dumbbell you can feel a contraction, but not a hard one. That said, 't compromise form for weight. Here's exercise called incline concentration curl that's really good for hard contractions: Push the dumbbells together as shown the upcoming video below and squeeze the heck out of them. Watch the video of the incline concentration curl to get idea of the form. For triceps, as mentioned earlier, all pushdown variations work extremely well for strong, forceful contractions. I really 't the value taking breaks with small muscle groups. Seriously, if you're winded and ready to pass out after a set of 8 reps on barbell curls, your cardiovascular conditioning is a joke. If you do some Googling you'll find studies that demonstrate increased hypertrophy from shorter rest periods. I'll let you do that on your own time, as this article is more about street knowledge. Blood flow. Shorter rest periods help you achieve more of a pump. I know this is controversial, as believe the pump is overrated. I 't agree. Through the years I've found the best arm training results when I was also getting the best pumps. I'm sure proper nutrition, pre and intra-workout supplementation, and other factors also play a huge role, but I'm convinced that short rest breaks on arms pump the heck out of them if you're using good form with a manageable weight. how should your breaks be? Here are a few things you should try: 30-second breaks. This is the rest interval I typically take when pre-contest mode. It's enough time to recharge for your next set, but not that you lose focus. If you're alternating between biceps and triceps exercises, the timing should work itself out. Just go back and forth, banging out your sets. Note: I 't sit and actually time myself, nor should you once you've gone through a few workouts and become accustomed to a brisker pace. Autoregulation, right? It works. Volume for biceps and triceps training is lower than with larger body parts such as legs and back. With these techniques for intensity, a high number of sets simply isn't necessary. Like all body parts, I like to gradually increase arm volume, train hard for six weeks or at that volume, and then bring the volume back down. Intensity doesn't change, but the difference volume provides built periodization. 12-week program for arms looks like this: Phase 2 Weeks 4: Use a high volume approach. Now we start to build volume each week. Your body be adjusting to the intensity you threw at it the first phase, we keep it off balance by adding more overall volume and total tonnage lifted over the course of another six weeks. Sets typically go to 9 sets for biceps and 12 for triceps, with more high intensity sets added weekly. Typically we use three to four exercises. You're going to for 6 weeks hard during this phase. Phase 3 Weeks 10: Use a low to medium volume approach. Set ranges be around 4 sets for biceps and triceps. Overall volume now goes down
