If you are training chest and back correctly, your arms will get more than plenty of work!

Completely agree I rarely do direct arm work besides OHP.
If I do hit direct arm work like I have this cycle it's because it's to assist a lift. Eg I have been done some direct tricep work to help my OHP lockout. When you do an assistance actually have a reason to do it.


Really a beginner should be working on strength gains, so barbell work. I personally think if it's not loaded onto a barbell it's assistance. You should be doing stronglifts or starting strength.

Also training back/chest twice a week isn't the best of ideas
