Day 312 - Body Beast Bulk: Arms "Bulk Phase" Progress

Below is the improvement I saw on Bulk: Arms throughout the "Bulk" phase of Body Beast. The pacing of this routine, coupled with the fact that the biceps and triceps are smaller muscle groups make this routine a tough one to improve drastically on. I think I did quite well throughout the Bulk Phase, however, and got a tremendous pump every time!

The two progressive sets at the end of the workout move at such a quick pace so they just murder your arms! If you go heavier at the start of the workout, don't let your ego get in the way during those last 2 progressive sets as they will humble you big time!
