    Even rippletits includes pull ups and curls

      Are non weighted pullups/chins ups enough to build biceps? Rippentoe doesn't seem to promote weighted pullups. And I didn't hear him talk about curls.

        if you want big arms isolate biceps and triceps
        do curls and tricep extensions
        chinups aren't enough

    Not enough back, add rows or pull-ups.
    Also hamstrings might become neglected, depending on your deadlift technique, hamstring curls are great.

    It's a good way to train, currently because I'm so busy I only go to the gym 2 days a week and I do squat, OHP (usually single arm standing ohp), Pull-ups and rows or deadlift. Then some core work. I find it pretty good way to train, and also because I time my rest periods, I can have a full body workout in 50 minutes.

    You should be doing rows and pull ups along with a few accessories a couple of weeks in, but really there isn't much point to this minimalist style of training.
    It's a pretty big meme that SS style training is the only way to get strong, I and a lot of others have made more strength gains and double the size gains doing a standard PPL.

    Unless you're a super busy ceo that only has 30 minutes available for the gym, which probably isn't the case since you're on IST, there isn't much need to have a nice day in the foot.

    Please do a maximalist training block.
    You will see what gains have been left on the table.

      post a good maximalist routine that only uses barbell, bench and a squat rack. It's all I have at my home.

        you should do curls but if youre a stubborn fuckhead and refuse to at the very least you need to do weighted chinups

          also you will find that once you start benching more weight you will realize that the biceps are more important for bench than people make them out to be. theyre a minor mover and do a good amount of stabilization. if you do train like you said in your OP u will 100% hit a bench plateau that you will not be able to break without growing your biceps
          plus having big biceps just looks cool man idk the guy in ur pic has big biceps and u probably aspire in someway to look like him

            Meme as fuck, I basically never train biceps and I've never ran into a bench plateau that more benching couldn't fix.

    is your main focus another sport or you're lifting to lose weight? ok, then a minimalist training routine is fine
    but why would you be a minimalist if lifting is your main mode of training?

      So I'm thinking this (I only have basic home gym equipment):
      back - ?
      calves - calf raises
      biceps - weighted chin ups
      rear delts -
      neck - ?
      abs - planks, side planks
      lats - ?
      How do I hit lats, neck and back?
      Also for these accessory do you bother increasing weight every time you workout, or do you just casually do some sets until failure with about the same weight every week?

          Barbell rows are scary. I never feel like they give my muscles exercise without sacrificing my form which can easily lead to snap city

        idk what gym equipment you have exactly but
        for lats pullups and chinups hit it
        youll also want to do shrugs for your upper back.
        if you only have a barbell i guess for rear delts you should do behind the neck press or upright rows if you have the mobility, if you dont then i guess maybe rear delt flies holding a pair of small plates?
        you can do barbell curls for biceps as well
        google natural hypertrophy neck training for a guide on that
        >Also for these accessory do you bother increasing weight every time you workout, or do you just casually do some sets until failure with about the same weight every week?
        have a set rep range [for example 3x8-12], and once youre easily banging out 12 on all 3 sets then up the weight
