Lagging Bicep Size and Shoulders : LUSENET : Bodybuilding : One Thread

I have been competing in senior women's bodybuilding for 2 years and wish to increase my bicep size and obtain "caps" on my shoulders. What are the BEST exercises for these muscles. Thanks.

Though I have some success with developing my Chest,but it seems particularly difficult to develop my shoulder and my biceps.

My biceps respond very well, and I've found seated,alternate dumbell curls to be the absolute best mass builder. I do appx. 6 sets of alternate dumbell curls on bicep day, 8-10 reps per set. Once warmed up, I use 45 pound dumbells for all six sets. I finish off biceps w/ 3-4 sets of another excercise, sometimes machine curls, sometimes EZ bar curls, etc. Intensity and heavy weights have helped me build 17 inch biceps, with loads of definition.I am 6"1', 185#, 32"waist. Hope this helps.

My name is Arbre from Asia, I'm sorry if my english is very bad and I hope you can understand me. I ussually doing side lateral 10 repetitions in 5 sets that for the warm up. Shoulder press 10 repetitions with 20kg, 8 repetitions with 25kg for second set and 6 repetitions with 30kg for third set. Up right rows 10 repetitions in 5 sets and heavy dumbel shrugs 20 repetitions in 2 sets. I'm doing this training programs everyday for two months. And now my shoulder is very wide.

The arm muscles are a relative small group of muscles and recover faster. You might want to increase the frequency of your arm workout, it worked for me!
