I trained some arms this morning and walked away with an incredible pump. Since I did some heavy 5 x 5 training yesterday it was nice to handle some lighter weights this morning. I’m calling this my arm pump workout.
Arm Pump Workout
4 rest-pause sets x 20 reps
EZ Bar Curls:
4 rest pause sets x 20 reps
4 sets x 15 reps
Seated Dumbbell Curls:
4 sets x 10 reps
The rest-pause sets are something I do frequently. This technique allows you to reach complete muscle failure. And in essence, you’re doing more reps with a moderately heavy weight.
The key to this morning’s arm pump workout, and this is somewhat a given, is strict form. For this reason, I never go super heavy for arms. You see a lot of folks in there swaying the weight, using momentum. That doesn’t do a lot for targeting the muscle.
There’s not a ton of volume with this arm workout. But every rep was extremely intense. Starting out with rest pause sets set the tone for the entire workout. I did some abs work and cardio afterwards.
Train with Passion,
