Last night I tried something slightly different for my arm workout: I reduced my rest intervals across the board in an effort to ratchet up the intensity level to new levels. My bicep/tricep superset workouts are already brutal, as (of course) there is no rest between the biceps and triceps portion of each superset. Reducing the amount of rest between each superset to just 45 seconds and to just 1 minute between each new set of exercises significantly increased the difficulty. It was a real challenge to adhere my self-imposed abbreviated rest intervals, particularly as the workout progressed and I became more fatigued. It will be interesting to see how my arms respond over the next few weeks. I plant to continue in this style for the remainder of my bulk. I posted a few more details on the workout along with a new picture in last night’s entry to my media journal.
