So if somebody could give me what kind of exercises, how many reps and sets, how many days a week and how many rest days that I should have. If somebody could help me out that would be really, really appreciated. Thanks!
Dont focus a workout on your arms especially so many times a week, Doing core exercises will build your arms and then by doing arms as a add on exercise can be useful.

For example this is what I do weights wise a week as mma takes a big part up.

Day 1 - Chest, Shoulders, Biceps
Day 2 - Back , Traps, Triceps

My usual Workouts are
Day 1 - Squats, Bench Press, Incline flyes, Shoulder Press, Straight dumbell raises, concentration curls and close grip pull ups.

Day 2 - Squats, Deadlifts, Rows, Wide grip pull ups, Shrugs, Weighted dips, tricep pushdown.

Usually with a 2 day break aswell as other training (BJJ, MMA, Boxing)

Dont just focus on arms a lot of young lads do that(not that im old only young myself) but having big arms wont make you strong.

(If i am way of the mark anyone let me know always want to improve.)

No mate, you are one of few here who talk sense. However, I feel that you are doing too many of the big exercises on the same day. For example, I would NEVER do squats and deadlifts on the same day. You must feel dead after that day..

You are working your entire body with squats and especially deadlifts. I reckon you'd do better splitting them up on different days.

If you have a 3 day workout split you should do deadlifts on 'Back' or 'Pulling' day. You'd benefit more from that. Trust me.

Who are you to tell him that? Do you experience/see the results he/she does? Nah, I'd just pipe it.

My current bicep challenge: running 1/2 mile twice a week with 50 pound sandbag.



this has worked wonders so far. People wanna get diesel from weightlifting and reps. Best test for overall strength is muscular endurance.
