Got a decent chest/back lift in today. I lift alone so i don't usually do a full free weight chest/back list but that's what I did today, with the exception of decline bench and lat pull downs.

Tomorrow will be arms and shoulders, full free weights. Should be fun!

Keep kicking arse, Charlie.

Been a good 10 days since I have been in the gym due to my bronchitis. I have a scheduled 5 day break starting Wednesday. Trying to get motivated to get a few days in before then, I just get out of the groove a little too easily sometimes.

Happy Belated Bday, Chris!!!

Hope you get a few killer lifts in before your deload, Tom.

Got in an hour of fasted cardio this morning. Decided to hold off on my arms/shoulders lift until tomorrow, due to massive soreness from the chest/back workout. LOL

Well ... i'm pretty sure i ate ALL the food in Southern Ohio last night LOL

Back to the gym today, for my sins.

Doing all free weight arms today ... which leads me to a question. For those of you who superset arms, do you do antagonizing muscles (superset tris/bis) or same muscle (superset preacher curl w/ hammer curls)? I've mostly done antagonizing supersets and enjoy them but I do feel like doing same muscle supersets might be a nice switch. So I guess a second question would be, if you do same muscle supersets, how do you structure an arm day? Would you do a bicep same muscle superset and follow that with a tricep same muscle superset? Would you do all of your bicep exercises and then all your tricep exercises?

TIA guys

I do biceps and triceps when I super set them.

I don't hit arms often, once a week. I feel like I do enough compound movements to the point where my arms are being exhausted enough so when it's times to hit arms, there already a nice flow of blood.

I'm more of an old school guy when it comes to arms, I keep it fairly simple and try not to get too crazy.

Here's my superset when I hit arms once a week:

Barbell curl -- incline skull crushers w/bb
Incline DB curls -- rope extensions

Nice work Charlie, I can sympathize with the remainder of southern Ohio. I've done the same.

Maybe Christos can comment on the super setting as well?

I did something last night, was doing shrugs and tweaked my neck. So I Stopped and just did some cardio for a while. Probably will take the week end off and see if it will correct quickly.

Sucks about the tweaked neck, Chris. Hope it heals up fast and you're back at it. Enjoy the weekend!

So I did same muscle group supersetting last night but rotated biceps and triceps after each superset. Idk if that was a good or bad call but I felt like it was gonna give me the best shot at my muscles being able to endure a hard workout than doing bicep superset followed by bicep superset. If that makes any sense.

So I did close grip bench press SS w/ laying overhead EZBar extensions. Then EZBar Preacher Curl SS w/ dumbbell hammer curls. Then Skull Crushers SS w/ Close Grip Cable Pull Down. Then Seated Declined dumbbell curls SS w/ EZBar Zottman curls. Then for the very last SS, I did a EZ Cable Curl SS w/ Close Grip Cable Pull Downs with the final set of each being a drop set in 20lb increments until failure all the way down the stack.

I'll say that my arms feel super worked today. Next time I may do all biceps first with a little more rest between SS, just to compare and see which one I feel gives me a better workout. I shall report back with my findings. lol

Default Re: Pumping Iron with Zemekone and Icehog3 II

Because the bicep and tricep muscles are one of the smallest muscle group, I personally believe there's no wrong way to go about training them. If you're super setting them bi/bi or bi/tri etc.

Like I mentioned, hitting big compound movements involves using your arm strength as is so when you're hitting isolating your arms, it's just accessory work.

Hope that made sense.

Oh, heavy leg day last night. Hit 315 for front squats for 8 singles and then a bunch of pause front squats for 275. Heavy leg presses and hack squats, that's all she wrote.

Lighter push day today.

Decent push day yesterday, lifted everything around 65% to 60% but reps were relatively high for me, around 8-12.

Volume leg day. Didn't bring my knee sleeves since I'm out of town, so I won't go too heavy for today's volume training.
