Exhausted forearms

I do back and Biceps on a monday, and the routine is as follows:

Deadlift 3 x 8
Seated Row 3 x 8
Lat Pulldown3 x 8
DB Curls 3 x 8

Hoewver, after doing the first 3 exercies, my arms, particularly my forearms are pretty exhausted. I struggle to do the DB even with a ligh weight such as 8kg.

I was wondering should I do more bicep work on another training/cardio day?

My forearms be heavily pumped man and they feel like rock.

    For the curls, do 5x5 rather than 3x8

    if you really cant hold the weight, definately move your bi's to another day ( at least 2 days away from back)

    Hal, do you really think you should be giving advice? Do me a favor, read and learn from myself and the other knowledgeable members here.

    How does it work? What is the difference between the 3x8 and the 5x5? What are the different goals that are to be achieved by using the two above methods? Just a quick few questions.

    Hal, you are 16 and just yesterday you had no idea what a proper routine looked like. Now, that is not a bad thing, as members are here to learn. With that said, someone who has such little experience should not be giving out advice that they have no idea about.

    he said he couldnt do 3x8 but 5x5 is easier so he may be able to do it cause its less reps each time, thats all i thought!!!!!!!!! Does it matter?

    It's a similar workout to me mate. It might just be you because I'm tired after the curls. I used to get tired before curls but worked through it and so it's only ever after (or during) the curls. Maybe rearranging it will do better for you:
    Seated row
    Dumbell curls
    Lat pulldown
    Deadlift

    You are making my point for me. 5x5 is easier than 3x8?? What are you talking about. Take my advice and learn. You have a lot of that to do! You certainly should not be questioning me, but rather learning.

    Yes, pretty much and it is why you are exhausted afterwards. I don't think 5x5 will do as much for mass as 3x8.

    As deviant said. move you Bi's to another day, The lat pull down can be a pretty forarm intensive exercise, obvioulsy on your grip, so your over working them by going straight to db curls after that.
