Build Big Biceps And Chiseled Abs With Staggered Sets

  1. 1. Build Big Biceps And Chiseled Abs With Staggered SetsA lot of guys that workout have body parts they love to train. For me, its my biceps - and nothingbeats the pump that comes from a few sets of preacher curls. On the other hand, many people alsohave body parts they hate to train, such as legs, back or abs.The bugaboo for me was abs. Oh I wanted a shredded six-pack like the ones on the covers ofbodybuilding magazines - but I hated the work required to flatten and tighten my abs. Then I triedstaggered sets of arms and abs training and entered the brave new world of the washboard waistline.What are "staggered sets?" Staggered sets integrate your favorite body part training with a workoutfor one that youd otherwise avoid training. For example, if you love to work your chest but hate totrain calves, with staggered sets youd do one set of calf training for every three sets of chest workthat you completed. A sample chest/calves staggered set workout would be three sets of bench pressfollowed by one set of standing calf raises, then three sets of dips followed by one set of seated calfpresses, then three sets of incline bench press followed by one set of seated calf raises.When I used staggered sets to train my abs, I integrated my abs work into my arm training in thissame 3-to-1 fashion to ensure that I trained my core. For every three sets of arm training I completedI also did one set of abs work. Since I loved training arms so much, before I knew it, my abs becameflatter and tighter than I ever imagined because of the staggered sets workouts. If you want to trystaggered set workouts for your biceps and abs, heres one of my favorites to help get you started.Sample Staggered Set Workout - Biceps/AbsDumbbell Preacher Curls - 1x8, 1x6, 2x4 followed by 1 set of 25 - 100 abdominal crunches.Concentration Curls - 1x8, 2x6, 1x4 followed by 1 set of 25 - 100 reverse crunches.EZ Bar Preacher Curls - 2x8, 1x6, 2x4 followed by 1 set of 25 - 100 twisting crunches.If youve got a body part that you hate to train, especially if its your abs, try working it with staggeredsets. You may never fully enjoy training this body part, but its a lot easier to take this "medicine"when you combine it with your favorite workouts.Click Here to Discover 3 Odd Foods that KILL Your Abdominal Fat
