CrossFit and Big Guns

Has anyone used crossfit + other exercises for bigger guns????

By guns I mean arms and yes I am serious.

I would like some bigger arms for my girlfriend and I just think they would look cool.

I wouldn't mind replacing a couple functional day for an arms day if I have to also.

Re: CrossFit and Big Guns

Isolation work isn't terribly taxing neurologically, so adding some curls, skull crushers, etc. shouldn't be too terrible after a workout (especially strength days).

Your goals are your goals, I doubt anyone here truly does it purely for the fitness aspect. Looking good might not be my main goal, but damn it sure does help motivate me.

You've been doing this long enough to know what you want. If curls are part of the equation, go for it. If you want to keep it functional, the weighted/DH pullups are great, as are weighted dips and HSPU. You might want to lag the mainpage by a bit so, for example, you don't throw in your arm work the day before a JT or that pullup workout we just had.

Re: CrossFit and Big Guns

T-Nation gets made fun of a fair bit here, but for its target audience it really is an excellent resource. Check out some of their arm building articles, and anything that Chad Waterbury has written.

Re: CrossFit and Big Guns

adding in 'for my girlfriend' really headed that off at the pass.

Nice work, Lance. Bruce maybe?

No. Crap, his name is Jason.

Re: CrossFit and Big Guns

I don't know much about bodybuilding, where should I start? Reps and sets?

Maybe 3 sets, max reps 65lb curls and skullcrushers after a workout?
