    Question Six Weeks To Sick Arms

    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:

    Monday: Triceps/Biceps
    Tuesday: Chest/Shoulders/Traps/Abs
    Wednesday: Back/Biceps/Triceps
    Thursday: Off
    Friday: Legs/Calves/Biceps/Triceps
    Saturday: Off
    Sunday: Off

    What do you guys think?
    Thanks!

    I am new, but I thought one of the keys to working out was rest. I know it takes a good 4 to 5 days before I feel that I could even really do the same weight and sets again on the same muscle group. Not trying to bash your plan, I am just wanting to learn more from others who reply.

    Yeah, but thats the whole point of this training.

    "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:

    Weeks 3-5:
    Use this split during weeks three, four and five:

    Monday: Triceps/Biceps
    Tuesday: Chest/Shoulders/Traps/Abs
    Wednesday: Back/Biceps/Triceps
    Thursday: Off
    Friday: Biceps/Triceps
    Saturday: Back/Legs/Calves
    Sunday: Off

    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!

    If you're going to use this I hope you're an intermediate because if you're a novice I think you may be disappointed by your results after six weeks
