I like the second routine better then the first. I've never found that my arms get big from too much direct arm work as opposed to just hitting the big exercises and adding some curls.
Thank you! I really think that this second program would be quite optimal for me at the moment. After the summer Im really looking to get a good strength and muscle gains..and I thought that this program with enough rest and eating a lot quality food would give it to me.
My friend is a different case because he gets muscle and strength so easily and recovers very well. When we started 13 months ago, he deadlifted 110kg... now he is benching 140kg, squatting 170kg and deadlifting 220kg. He is an animal.
And turning 40 this year!
