    Biceps

    im doing pretty intense back training once a week and i found if i did biceps two days before, that my back routine suffered, should i bother doing any isolation exercises for biceps or just do them half a week after my back routine?

    Post your back workout...
    I do 4 sets of biceps after my 12 set back workout.
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    Agree with the Doctor or do them a couple of days after working back

    If your goals are strength, isolation exercises are not necessary.
    Push yourself. Enjoy yourself. Be yourself.

    I love this split...

    1) Chest, Biceps
    2) Quads
    3) Rest
    4) Rest
    5) Back, Triceps
    6) Delts, Calves
    7) Rest

    It allows for a great full arm workout twice a week and more than ample time for every muscle group to recover before working it again. I use a bunch of splits but this is one of my favorites. Could certainly help you out with what you're looking for.
    May the Lord Jesus Christ bless those who bless me as I gladly accept their blessings, and curse those who curse me all the while protecting me for any evils. In Christ name, amen...
