I am following the training program "Six Weeks To Sick Arms" (I would post the link here, but post count must be 30 or greater), but I have a doubt and a problem.
There is no way I can do the training split from the weeks 3-5, because I can't go to gym at saturdays.
So, I would like to stick with the splits that I do the Thursdays off.
I've been thinking to do a split like this for the weeks 3-5:
What do you guys think?

"This six-week program is a progression that ramps up the training frequency (how often you train arms each week) starting at once per week in week one; twice per week in week two; and three times per week in weeks three through five. Then you back way off in the final week, number six, to just once per week again."
But the problem is, I can't do the suggested split:
Use this split during weeks three, four and five:

Understand that you're actually hitting your arms every training day either directly or indirectly. That's a TON of attention for what is the smallest muscles in your body don't you think? I gained an inch on my arms (19" now) by dropping the direct work and just doing more heavy back work. In other words, I dropped curls and extensions for more weighted chins and dips. I'm not advocating not doing ANY direct arm work for bodybuilders, but I wanted to get your thought process moving in the right direction.
To add: Be very wary of programs with flashy names promising results in a few weeks. It's disingenuous and about as bad as the Anaconda ads from T-Nation. You know, the one where CT gains another 25 pounds in a month or two... Like he does with every new protocol released!Visit my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfADMjm2XtMj-umgWSioT2Q
