Arm Training: Less is Best!
When training your arms don't over do it. Some of the most common mistakes people make are doing too many sets, too many reps and training arms too frequently.
You need to remember that biceps and triceps get a lot of work all week long when training your back, chest and shoulders so they don't need many direct sets of overload. I recommend 4-5 sets maximum for biceps and the same for triceps. I split these sets up using basic compound exercises and the Max-OT principles.
So when you plan your next arm workout remember to keep the volume low and the intensity high!
