Workout Description

This is a high volume bicep and tricep workout that should only be performed once per week. It allows you to work your arms without moving from station to station. Try to perform as many reps as possible per set. When you can perform the target rep goal for all sets of a given exercise, increase the resistance.

Perform all tricep exercises first before moving on to the bicep exercises. This workout excludes warmup sets. Do not perform these exercises to failure. Stop each set when you believe you might not be able to complete each rep.

I suggest doing some back work like t-bar rows and deadlifts...that will get your arms pumped then finish them off with a few sets of bicep need for too much isolation
