    bicep training frequency

    How many times per week you be able to work biceps without going into overtraining? I only do one all out set of dumbell curls. Would I be able to do that 3 times per week or would that be too much?

    You could easily get away with more frequency dependant on the volume used but i personally prefer to have an arm day in which i can use a high amount of volume. This just works better for me.

    you can work any muscles any days of the week, it depends on the volume you do per workout.

    1 set of curls, you could do that every day most likely.

    Dont train them more than twice a week. I only hit them directly once a week with 6-7 sets and indirectly once a week training back.

    keep the rep range 6-10

    My biceps are big so i suggest you take the advice.

    heres a good routine for them

    2 sets Standing Barbell Curls 6-8

    2 sets Preacher Curls 6-8

    2 sets Hammer Curls 6-8
