i had my bicep workout on monday but i also hit them in my back workout quite hard yesterday. Would this have been okay or would this have caused a negative effective? Granted i probs should have paired back and biceps together but i didnt :/
next week im gna try and follow a pretty solid routine with them together though..
so is it okay to have hit them twice a week with 3 days rest between?

ah ok are you sure? i was just worried that cause it was still a little sore i would have completely wasted my bicep workout from monday thus making it pointless.. :/
but if you think it would have recovered then thats good i guess. I mean, if it didnt effect my lifting that means that it had recovered surely?
Also on the split you were talking about, im not sure as alot of people say its good to do tris/chest, back/bis together cos if u did them apart they wudnt recover?

Look, don't buy into this "split workout" stuff. Sure it's great, but training a muscle group once a week isn't going to produce best results. I trained legs twice a week HARD and my legs exploded from 22 to 26 inches in a couple months. Now I train chest and traps twice a week and I've been seeing great results. And hell if your stuffing down the calories with perfect nutrition, sleep, training... AND you're a teenager, you could train a muscle up to 3 times a week! Honestly all these guys are worried about overworking and not recovering, well all they're doing is slowing their results.
So yes, hit your biceps twice a week if thats what you want to grow the most.

do them whenever you please
however some guidelines to follow:
- 'muscle takes 48hours to recover' (youll hear this alot, so seperate isolated muscle group workouts 2 days apart at least)
- having said this, when working back youll be stimulating biceps so implement this into your schedule.
--> 2 isolated bicep workout sessions = 3 (including back, hits the biceps brachii muscle group)
if you want bigger gains, try drop sets (pushing out more reps and sets of very light weights after workout, youll feel burns and tearing in the muscle = good!)
try negatives, instead of contracting the muscle, try hold the position at the top and slowly bring the weight down during the last half of the motion, eg. 10secs of dumbbell bicep negatives 3 reps, 2-3sets. itll burn you like a mofo. HUGE gains. HUGE pumps. HUGE ceps.Mind over Matter
