Serge Nubret Arm Workout
Build Big Arms Workouts
What was Serge Nubret's arm training routine?
Serge Nubret started off in Anse-Bertrand, Guadeloupe where he was born on October 6 1938 but he started out early and by the time he was 12 he knew he wanted to be a bodybuilder. He later moved to France to complete his accounting degree for which he got a full scholarship.
But his passion was always bodybuilding and after the NABBA Mr. Universe title in 1976 he became professional and got the well-known nickname as the "Black Panther". He came from the hard-core bodybuilding when size and strength came together showing perfectly shaped 22 inch arms.
Serge was known for his perfect proportions, symmetry and his general aesthetics. With his height at half an inch short of 6 feet with a 28 inch waist carrying 220 pounds of muscle he was certainly impressive on stage. He won nearly every time he stood on stage claiming the Mr. Universe title in 1976 and the Mr. Olympus in 1977.
Serge believed in high reps and did not concentrate on maximum lifts, always training with a very high volume and no more than 30 seconds rest between sets.
Serge had a very scientific way of approaching his training and would train his arms twice a week like most bodybuilders. However he would never do the same two arm workouts in the same week and would very the two on separate days.
The first time he trains arms in the week he would do 8 sets of 12 reps with 30 seconds rest between sets. He believed strongly in super-setting as he correctly believed that the pump gave him size. He would superset normal barbell curls with tricep pushdowns.
Then he would superset D/B curls with Dips for 8 sets of 12 reps and that would be the end of his arm workout for that day. The next time he trained arms he would still superset but with more sets and do the same movements but with 16 sets of 12 reps each.
