Hi JHS. The routine I gave you is very similar to what I and many others used to gain mass and strength. It is not a bodybuilding routine, but bodybuilders might want to try this type of thing out once or twice a year. It can be used by anyone, but I think you would be better off using it after a 3-4 week breakin period. Good luck, JHS
Thanks TimD, but I don't know if going more heavy (the reps you suggested are all below 8 almost) will further amplify my wrist tendonitis.
Hello JHS, I am new to bodybuilding (just started) but I have already used some db Triceps exercises from which I really felt my arms burn and see them getting larger, especially the Kickback and Triceps extensions.
The Triceps extensions will really improve your lateral head (outside of arm) and with the kickback I've felt the medial and long head, propably only these because my lateral head is very big in comparison with the other heads, really burn. http://exrx.net/Lists/ExList/ArmWt.html#anchor122387
You might also want to do some forearm exercises to make your arm bigger
Hey Wouter, glad to hear your arms get larger at the early stage already. I did quite a bit of tricep extensions (cable) before too, but that make my lateral head stick out much more than the long head. That's why I switched to bench dip to balance it back out (some growth to long head but not enough to overcome the already larger lateral head). I don't know about kickbacks, because it seems to have a reputation of being a useless execrise (I think I heard this from threads earlier or from other weight-training forums) But then again, I will try anything to make my arms bigger.
Regarding doing forearm execrises, it will be a bad idea at this stage due to recent wrist tendonitis. Also, my right forearm right now is 12" while my upper arm is 11.5" (both relaxed), so making it any bigger will further alienating my upper arm size.
