Can you train back and biceps together?

Wondering if you can train your back and biceps together? Do these two muscle groups fit into one training session or should you train them on different days? After reading this article, you will know if you can train back and biceps on the same day, what are the advantages and disadvantages and what you should pay attention to.

If you train your back and biceps together, you can save time because the biceps are already involved in the back workout and therefore fewer exercises are needed. On the other hand, the biceps will no longer have the full strength potential because they are pre-exhausted by the back exercises. If you focus on developing your arms, the chest and biceps combination is a good alternative.

Advantages

Besides the back shoulder, the biceps is already involved as an accessory muscle in back exercises. Therefore, you don’t have to do as many biceps exercises as with the chest and biceps combination. This way, the biceps is also warmed up by the back workout, again saving you time. Since back and biceps are related muscles (pulling), you can train chest and triceps (pressing) the following day without having recovery problems.

Disadvantages

When you train back and biceps together, the biceps are already pre-exhausted by the back exercises. This means that you have less strength for the biceps exercises than with a chest and biceps workout. In addition, the biceps are used less often than if you train chest with biceps and back with triceps. If you want to improve your arms, the combinations chest and biceps and back and triceps or a separate arm training are good alternatives.

Conclusion

When you train back and biceps together, the biceps are already stressed by back exercises. When it comes to biceps training, the biceps are already warmed up and fewer exercises are needed overall. However, the biceps no longer have full strength potential due to pre-exhaustion from back training. If you want to improve your arms, you can also try chest and biceps and back and triceps or do a separate arm workout.
