HIGH Weight
High(er) INTENSITY
LOW volume.

Get a PUMP, forming
PAIN in the muscle belly,
then NUMBNESS,
I am done.

I'd forgoe the high volume and
SAVE SOME FOR RECOVERY
the following days. . .

It was meant to 9 sets for forearms, they are a really sucky body part that hasnt developed that well even tho u use them all teh time.

I do 3 sets at end of each session of wrist curls or reverse curls,i think its slowly working.

OH and the sets i do for forearms arnt as intense or hard as arm sets. The sets of wrist curls etc r more of a finisher for forearms.

Pretty much for me to, although I have a frame of what exercises , and number of sets going in- I do better with structure - but THAT IS FOR ME PERSNALLY- my personality structure, if you like to" create" do that while stil busting a gut on EVERY exercise- post warmup. Works for me,  I'm 243   (at6'3"),
6 weeks out from my third competition.

Moderate sets with high intensity; 6 sets on smaller muscles, 9-10 sets on larger. More frequent training.

Used to do more volume but have concluded that moderate sets with more intensity is as good unless cutting.
