Hey Joe

My arms have forever been my weakest body part/s. Im generally wide through the clavicles so it usually makes my arms look smaller than they are. Thickest from the front seems to be an issue, when posed my arms are okish but relaxed they don’t look as developed as they should.

I’ve increased frequency up to 3 s a week for bi and tri also some lateral delt. The volume for them are somewhere between 5-7 failure sets weekly, so usually 2 failure sets per day that I train them.

What do you suggest? I’ve done a couple of your arm workouts that are really metabolic focused and they give me great contractions and pumps. Should I be concerned about overload on a particular movement/s or the general high rep range metabolic work? Or both? Thanks Joe, I need these arms to grow!
