2011 Ultimate Bicep Blast

The next time you are working out your biceps, focus on the quality of each repetition rather than on how many sets you do.  Ultimate bicep development is not achieved by doing 101 sets but rather by doing the right exercises the right way.

Try the workout below the next time you are working out your biceps.  This is a circuit training workout and therefore you want to perform one exercise and then immediately move on to the next exercise without a break.  Once you have completed the circuit, try and repeat the circuit again.  Continue to repeat the circuit until you can only manage 1 to 5 repetitions per exercise.  Ideally, you want to get about 6 to 12 repetitions per exercise.  If you can do three circuits in a row in this range than you should increase the weight.  If you can’t do more than one circuit in this range, then you should decrease the weight.

In essence the Daniel Craig workout was based on the following repetition and set scheme.
