I try to keep all my sets in the 6-10 range for arms. If I can do more than 10 it's to light if I can't get 6 it's to heavy.

Post back here and let me know how my setup felt for you.

Berz out.

Id say, instead of getting those one-weight dumbbells, get those ones where you can adjust the weight. But uh, try Miscelanous goods in the buy/sell section, or get them brand new.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

dropsets/supersets/extended sets all have their place. and all are more/less effective for muscle gain. all depends on how you use them, and make sure you dont over do them

Hey Guys

Been reading a lot online and there seems to be mixed reviews on whether its better to eat before doing hit's or doing hit's on an early stomach.

What would you guy's suggest?

I think it's eat a little,(say, a granola bar, piece of fruit, cup of milk, etc) for the energy, and wait 30m-1hr before doing HIT.
If you go on an empty stomach, your body will turn to muscle for protein, as its an intense workout. Eat too much and you might throw-up, get cramps, etc.
