If you're biceps are your biggest concern, you have a lot to learn.

And working ANY muscle group with 3 or 4 sets, EVERY day is overtraining.

I could go on and on, but I think you get the point.

Can you bench 350lbs right now? Probably not, that does not mean it can't be done. Only that you can't do it. Your not trained enough to accomplish that task, yet!

It is the same thing with fullbody work. You must train for the event to accomplish it properly. After you have read the John Christy thread, then go read the Casey Butt thread in the Bodybuilding section. It is stickied for you right at the top of the page.

Anybody can do a Weider type split. It takes an Athlete to train fullbody.

nice reference about " training" love it, cuz that is what we are doing when we hit the weights. Training our bodies to move insane amounts of weight.

I train full-body as often as I can, which usually ends up being ~5x per week.

The difference is that I solely do heavy compound movements, no more than 3 or so movements per session, and eat and sleep enough to recover.

You have to work up to it.

There was a time I thought the way you are thinking, but today my views are totally different. The biceps do not need a lot of direct work.

Try asking this question of the folks here on the board:

What is a good full body workout for a beginner?

You will be pleased with the replies.

Because they are suppose to be hard. Old piece of sage advice from years gone bye: "If it was easy, everyone would be doing it".
