What To Do For Slow Growing Muscle Groups

Don Howorth, Frank Zane, Chet Yorton

What do you recommend when one muscle group grows slower than the rest of the body? Everything is growing but my arms.

Should I do more sets and/or exercises for this area or more forced reps and harder work or should I train the area more often or a combination of all three?

You may have to change exercises to find more workable movements.

Experiment with Tri-sets. That is performing 3 biceps exercises, one after the other. Then repeat the whole cycle again. Perform 4 cycles of three different biceps exercises and 4 cycles of three different triceps exercises.

Work to increase work load slightly each workout and gradually decrease rest time between exercises to zero.

Growth comes from a training frequency per muscle group of 2 or 3 times a week. No less no more.
