This bicep workout will help you build arm size by focusing on three different training approaches, all used in the same workout. You will be performing this workout only once a week.
- Power. You will perform 4 power sets to lead off the workout. Power sets are performed in the 3 to 5 rep range. Use the same weight for each of the 4 sets. When you can perform 5 reps for all 4 sets, move up in weight.
- Muscle. Muscle sets for biceps are performed in the 6 to 12 rep range. When you hit the upper rep limit of 12, move up in weight. You will be performing 4 total muscle sets in each workout, using 2 different exercises.
- Burn. You will perform 2 burn sets at the end of your workout - generally using isolation movements. Pick a weight that allows you to hit 15 to 20 reps, and then perform 40 total reps. How? Do as many reps as possible, then take a slight rest and perform more reps. Rest only long enough to regain the energy and willpower to perform 1 to 3 more reps. Keep pushing yourself through the pain until you hit 40 total reps. When you can hit 25+ reps from the start without stopping, add weight.
