The 30 day arm challenge

40 posts in this topic

THe thread itself is closed, but wanted to know more tbh [MENTION=22398]Milky[/MENTION] , so my understanding is it was 30 days to train arms has best you can and log the before and after pics etc and the winner is the most improved ?

So out of interest , what did most people actually do, I notice some gained by 0.5 inches, was that pumped up or cold ?

Did anyone actually hammer arms every single day ?

I'm interested to see what actually proved the best method here.

spoke to a lad yesterday who was part of the challenge and he put 0.5 - 1" on in the 30 days doing bi's and tri's every other day - e.g monday bi's, tuesday tri's, wed bi's etc etc

I actually gained over an inch. I was training bis n tris every day alternately but the last week I was struggling with that so just went back to my normal 5 day split

Might try this then. But did people train their arms every workout session or literally every day 7 days a week? Because if I were to do it on my workouts I would only get 16 arm sessions in within 30 days... at that rate it would take just under 60 days to get 30 sessions in.

seems the guys that got the most out of it were those that were smashing them daily

i was only doing them twice a week. was harder than i thought fitting them into my split with all the other stuff i was doing

I gained half an inch and did hammer curls and side lateral raises daily I used light weights and out the 30days I think I only missed a couple..I'm going to carry on and see how I get on

What kind of volume did you use? I imagine doing them every day you wouldn't need much volume at all?

I do a 4 day split at current and thinking I might try this 30 day arms thing and just do my cardio on the extra days.

I'm cutting though and about to cut my diet even further next week :( might not have the same gains as some.

I was also meant to be cutting but I fell off a few times its nit junk food I just tend to over eat, with the arm routine i kept it simple as I lose interest easily lol

Hammer curls 10kg 15x5

Side lateral raises 10kg 5x5

I'm thinking of going slightly heavier but carry on daily..

So higher volume seems to work, but I guess if you went heavy you'd never recover enough to do other body parts.

I trained either biceps or triceps every day. Then on a chest/tricep I'd do biceps and on back/biceps day I'd do triceps. I did a mixture of heavy/low reps and light/high reps. Added half an inch cold.
