    Off Season Arm Training

    In the off season, Phil Heath trains his triceps along with his chest, and his biceps along with his back, both on separate days. Here are the exercises he does for his triceps, which are done after his chest workout is completed.

    • Pushdowns with Rope Attachment  /  3 sets   /  12 reps
    • Dips  /  3 sets  /   12 reps
    • Close-Grip Bench Presses  /  3 sets  /   6-8 reps
    • Lying Triceps Extensions  /   7 sets  /   6-8 reps
    And here are the exercises, along with the sets and reps, that Phil Heath says he does for his biceps in the off season, which are done after his back exercises.

    Pre-Contest Arm Training

    While Phil Heath’s off season arm training and pre contest arm training might seem almost the same, there are changes in the amount of repetitions completed and such. Biceps are still trained after back, and triceps are still trained after chest. Here are the exercises for triceps:

    • Pushdowns with Rope Attachment  /  3 sets  /  12 reps
    • Dips  /  3 sets  /  12 reps
    • Close-Grip Bench Presses  /  3 sets   /  10-12 reps
    • Lying Triceps Extensions  / 7 sets /  10-12 reps
    And here are the exercises for the biceps:
    • Standing EZ-Bar Curls  /  3 sets  /  10-12 reps
    • Hammer Curls  /  3 sets /  10-12 reps
    • Concentration Curls  / 3 sets  /  10-12 reps
    • Hammer Strength Preacher Curls  / 7 sets  / 5-7 reps
    While this may be a workout routine that Phil Heath uses, various bodybuilders are constantly changing their routine to maximize muscle growth by using a variety of different training methods for the muscles to continually be forced to adapt.
