I feel that my biceps are lagging slightly behind my triceps in terms of arm development and strength. No matter how hard I pound them I just cant seem to get them to grow.
My current routine has me training biceps with my back. I do back first, then hit biceps.
Anyone have a good biceps routine that i can fit in on back day??
First off, I'm under the impression that your triceps are SUPPOSED to be bigger and stronger than the bicep....while it's cool to have big biceps and most guys want em...they are pretty small muscles, relatively speaking. I do very little direct arm work. VERY little...I feel as long as I am getting stronger on my row/pulldown variations and I'm taking in enough calories to support growth, my bi's and tri's won't fall too far behind.
No matter how hard I pound them I just cant seem to get them to grow.
This statement leads me to believe that you might be doing too much for your bi's....IMO one, MAYBE two exercises after hitting back will be fine.
Another question....are you eating enough to gain weight?? If you aren't gaining weight, chances are you aren't growing. You can get stronger all day long but if you aren't eating enough for growth then no amount of bicep curls will net the growth you so desire.

I agree with looking at the possibility you're overtraining your biceps. Especially is you're pounding them after doing back... Post your routine and we can make more sense of it. Ever consider simply switching your biceps to chest day and your triceps to back day? I highly prefer it... Even then, all most people need for max growth and size is 5-7 sets a week... Keep it as is and just try doing a single exercise, or two, for a total of 4 sets. Just back off a few weeks to see if you're overtraining...
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...
