    Sounds a little excessive but there's always days when I feel better and do more sets. As for doing 20 on biceps ..... chit. I normally do 16-18 on triceps so 24 doesn't seem too bad but you musta spent a while in the gym

    Not too much, unnecessary - yes.
    I normally do between 16-24 sets. Biceps or triceps don't need 20 sets.. I usually hit them in isolation for about 4-8 sets. They get work though pulling movements and pressing movements respectively.

    If you can do that many sets you need to up the weight.

Thatís how winning is done! Now if you know what youíre worth than go out and get what youíre worth.

    You say that like theyre as important as not skipping leg day.. its not that big of a deal i cant do skull crushers because it injures my elbows, and if you pay attention to what i said i did to close grip bench... soooo good try? i guess.

    too much imo. I personally wouldn't do more than 6 sets for bis and 9 for tris, maybe a little higher

    right??

    but honestly i think its just the c4... i took it for leg day and did 4 sets of squats, 3 sets of legg press, 80 lb lunges, 3 sets of leg extensions than curls... so i did 15 sets which isnt too bad but i wasnt tired... and its not the weight cause i PR'ed in litterally everything...

    20-30 sets is absolutely too much. Especially for a small muscle group like the biceps or triceps.

    For comparison, I'll hit 6-10 sets of biceps and triceps each.
    Close grip benchx3
    Skullcrushersx3
    Cable pushdowns or dipsx2
    incline curlx3
    hammer curlsx3
    machine curlsx2

    By the end of that, my arms are pretty burned out. OP, sounds like you were going way too light. Up the weight.

    Too much and unnecessary. After that 8th set you were no long lifting to see gains

    Arrow

    I agree with all of these except the "only do 6 sets of biceps" I've never seen anyone only do 6 sets of anything except things like abs or forearms

    I seriously only do like 9-10 working sets for every muscle group, and sometimes even less. Sometime's I'll just focus on 5x5 compounds and call it good for the day. Less is more as long as you take full advantage of the sets you're doing via progression overload imo.
