Biceps and triceps are a very resilient muscle groups.
These muscle groups quickly recover and are able to withstand large and intensive efforts (training).
To get the most out of these muscle groups, it is a combination of exercises with heavy weights and intense training program. The following training program is the work of licensed fitness trainer Tim Mack Compsi.
This 45 minute training program includes a combination of super sets (Super Series) and drop series who would take the look and size of your arms on the next level.
But before the start we should take in consideration the following information for those who are not familiar with the training method drop series.
Most of the people are familiar with the concept of drop series and sometimes practice this training method in their training program.
For all other trainees drop series by definition is: Making 3-4 sets (depending on the choice of the exercise the number of repetitions in each set should be the maximum number of repetitions that can be done with a given weight) of the same exercise without rest between each of the sets.
The key to this training method is to reduce the weight before each subsequent set.
Drop series can be performed with straight bars where taking advance should be provided all the necessary weights, using a one handed weights or exercise machine which is able to reduce the resistance.
