The whole idea behind High Intensity training is to hammer the muscle than allow enough time for growth. One of the ways you do this is by taking your sets to failure. Some other ways are by using intensity techniques like drop sets, forced reps, rest pause, pre-exhuast training, double pre-exhuast, anything to make your workout harder. When you use more intensity in your training they have to be short. To allow for recovery, you do not grow during training you grow during rest. Every body wants big arms here is a specialization routine for your biceps and triceps. One point to remember is you do not need to hold anything back pour everything you have into this workout. This is HARD WORK. So if you are not going to put your heart and soul in this workout don't waste your time.

DO THESE AS A SUPERSET

THAT IS THE ROUTINE

1. Do these routine for 8 weeks
2. You should not need any extra fore arm work you will get enough stimulation from gripping the bar
3. Remember you grow during rest so try to get at least 8-10 hours of sleep
4. Follow a balanced diet 50% carbs--30% protien--20% fat
5. Your calorie requirements should be 20 times your body weight minimum----you may need more your goal is to try to gain 2lbs a week
6. Abs - Just don't over do it
7. No cardio this is a specialization program devote all your energy to it

If you are allowing enough rest you ought to be able to add reps or weight each workout--do not take it easy on your monday and friday workouts the 20 rep breathing squats can do wonders. If you can't add weight or reps each workout allow another day rest in between your workout in 1 on---2 off format.

Thanks,

The Big Arm Routine.
