this is a hypothetical question. since most (average) people on the street will judge how big you are based on your arms, .. What size arms should you have to be considered *big* --average male 6'0 tall
17" is "big"
in the eyes of other males or females?

guy's think 17" is big, girls think 15" is big
I had a girl recently tell me i was "buff like usher"....I dont hit women, but she was pushin me.
17" lean arms are a good, managable size....i'll take two, thanks!

i hear that stupid handlesOriginally Posted by Jayhawkk
the appearence of your arms depend on many things. like i know these guys that go to my school, most of them are fat **** bouncers (another thing i never understood, why do bar managers think that fatass out of shape ****bags make good bouncers, well thats for another day) that probably have 20 inch arms that look like ****, because you couldn't see a striation cut or peak or any hint of definition and detail. so it all depends because i know some cafeteria ladies at my school with 24 inch "guns". the tape measure usually don't mean ****.
Damn, Omar, that was funny...the bouncers, the lunchladies...too true!
Very few people are ripped with 17 or 18 inch arms. As soon as I start to diet, I lose the fat around my arms and face first.
its strange but i have no intension measuring my arms. I know that when i'm bulking up they tend to grow or atleast they're looking full , I cant' even see my triceps , its like they are drowned. Its surtainly makes a big difference when I go outside with the feeling I got big arms even know they are not cut, just slightly cut. But when i'm cutting my arms they will start getting smaller and smaller like toothpics. I wish i could stay full all the time but bulking too often with fatty foods aint good. On the other hand my shoulders are so wide that they never tend me to look skinny. Got lucky with a large frame, long bones
I'm 25 , 230 lbs, 6'5" , 25% bodyfat
I've had my arms slightly past 20'' inches before and they never looked big to me. Now my freinds think I'm huge but I just don't see it. I guess its because I'm used to seeing myself in the mirror everyday. If I remeber right people started commenting on my arms when they hit around the 18'' mark.
Same here, had em pushing 21" but so used to seeing em it's no big deal. Like you the comments started around 18" but now I get this alot. I don't train em as hard as I used to, I think any bigger and they'll look cartoonish. Poor me right.Originally Posted by Jstrong20
