Monday is my tricep/bicep/forearms day and for triceps I do tricep pulldowns, rope pulls over head, and skullcrushers each exercise I do 3 sets of 15 and on the third set of each I go to failure. Would that be considered overtraining? and doesnt overtraining not lead to muscle growth?

Tricep is used alot in other lifts, i noticed the biggest gains when i acctually cut back on the lifts for my arms since they pretty much get a good work out through other lifts. I do rope pull downs 2 sets of 10 and then skullcrushers 3 sets of 12....but thats just me...but overtraining will prevent muscle growth could lead to injury too

how do your arms feel when the next day you work your arms comes around? if your still sore you might space it out so your arms can rest a bit. as far as over training goes i dont see a problem there, as long as yr not doing chest the very next day.

your bi's get hammered when doing bent over rows, deads, chins, face pulls, ect. ect.

your tri's get hammered when doing benches, overhead presses, ect. ect.

if you plan on doing any type of direct arm movement i wouldnt recommend anything other than 1 movement. and the only movements i would recommend are. .


close grip underhand chins/bb curls/alt. dumbell curls
close grip benches/weighed dips

you cant judge overtraining on if your still sore....even when your not sore ne more your muscles can still be trying to still recover....you gotta look at a lot of things like did your gains stop, are your lifts still improving, are you tired when you go to the gym....ect... theres a lot of things that gotta be taken into account but its all about trial and error and finding out whats best for your body...me personally i dont like doing to many sets on my arms cuz they get worked by almost every upper body workout you do
