It is said that in the late 1960's, before bodybuilders started to abuse steroids, Vince's methods produced more top physique stars than any other gym in the world. Give Vince's arm routine a try and see why the champs went to him for advise.
Metabolic Stimulation (Breathing Squats):
Squats, heels about 20 inches wide, knees a comfortable width about 24 inches. In the erect position, take 2 very deep breaths and hold the second breath and squat (back straight) and return to upright position and exhale. Perform 3 sets of 15 repeats, 2 to 3 minutes rest between sets. This gets your adrenal activated for your arm program.
Stand in front of the dumbbell rack and pick up a pair of 5# dumbbells. and with palms facing thighs, curl left dumbbell slowly turning palm up and bending to the left. Watching dumbbell travel up to shoulder, hand should be outside deltoid at contracted position. At this point, turn your head to the right and start to curl right dumbbell simultaneously.
As you curl the right dumbbell, lower the left dumbbell back to starting position. Counting with your left hand, complete four repeats only. Next step: put dumbbells back on rack and take 2 deep breaths and shake your arms and pick up the next heavier set and do 4 repeats.
Proceed until you have curled the heaviest set of dumbbells you can handle (creative cheating is ok). Next step: work down the rack to your starting set. That's it for bicep. Don't do any other bicep work.
Barbell pullover and press: lie on your back on can lower barbell below head. Take a 12" grip (over-hand) lower barbell down and back over head and slightly below bench level, with elbows in and up, pull barbell over face to low pec line.
At this point, swing at arms length over stomach (forward press). Lower barbell back down to chest and roll elbows in, parallel position (4 sets of 12 reps).
