    and the variable being discussed here is what people have had most success with when getting them to grow in size, when the other few attributes were assumed to be in place.
    So giggly grandma arms don't count?




    Unless you are going to pump yourself full of synthol a'la Greg Vantentino, you just gotta get bigger.

    I think this about sums it up:


    Big Arms, Big Physique

    Q: Is it true you have to gain a bunch of muscular body weight overall in order to get big arms?

    A: Typically, you have to gain 15 pounds of overall body weight to add an inch to your upper arm measurements. Now, if you want to go from 21 to 22-inch arms, which is enormous, it'll be more like a 25 pound gain.

    Weider writers claimed that Arnold used to have a 22 inch arm COLD. Arthur Jones said they were full of ****. Arthur Jones was right: The Weider camp was full of ****. For Arnold to have a legitimate 22 inch arm, he would've had to weigh 308.

    If you're going from a 14 inch arm to 16, then 30 pounds will do it. But going from 18 to 20 inches will require more like a 50 pound gain.

    yea i do agree. However I think there may be few exceptions where some genetically gifted (however i think "genetics" are overrated excuses for people not to work hard to achieve their goals). I think some people can have naturally disproportionate growth in the arms, but for the most part its all BS that if you go to the gym and do bicep curls 3x per week and nothing else that you can make 23 inch arms and a stick figure physique other wise.

    i heard it was more like 10lbs per inch on the arms.....oh well. I want 20+inch arms so 40+lbs gain it is!

    Yeah the 'genetics' excuse is a pretty poor one. My genetics gave me a large frame, which makes it tougher to 'fill out' vs. someone a foot shorter than me, but it certainly won't limit what I can do with time and persistence.

    If curling 3x / week gave you 'big guns', there would be a lot of 165# dudes walking around with howitzers sticking out of their sleeves...

    20"? damn.

    I would be happy to get to 19" and change, shirts are hard enough to buy now.

    i've got kinda thick joints and bones. sorta like how jay cutler has to be 300lbs whereas someone else can look similar (less bulky of course) at a lesser weight.

  13. Mine are 18.5 cold, but I am about to cut so they will shrink a little. But a nicely defined upper arm is more attractive then a big ball of mass so I am looking forward to it.

  14. I'm stuck at 16's. At my peak bulk they were 17s, but when I leaned back down they also went back down to 16s. Shlt.

    hahahah nice!.

    situation:

    so your chillin somewhere and theres this hot girl. she is instincutally turned on my your alpha-male-ness and you just wanna release some of your 1000mg per week of injected testosterone. so you figure its best to ask her to lunch first. to us there is no lunch. its like, hey....wanna hook up for some meal 3 today? and then she goes and hooks up with the skinny starbucks drinking tight ass abercrombie ***got wearing perfume.

  23. Yeah, I feel all of you. It pisses me off, I can get a pretty impressive lat spread, I can get big shoulders, I can get a big chest, but good god it takes so much to get my arms to grow. I found that the only thing that I can get my arms to grow with is high rep, lower weight exercises. I did high weight low rep for a long time and when I switched up they finally grew.

  24. I'm at 16" cut. I hardly ever hit just arms. I usually do a upperbody and lowerbody day followed by a rest day. I do a lot of benching, overhead, squats, deadlifts, and back work. I almost never do curls because I think they get enough work to stay strong from deadlifts and back work. They don't grow a whole lot though, but I've haven't been worried worried about being big.

    And my arms went from 14 to 16 with 35 pound gain, although I'm sure they could be bigger if I worked them more.

    hahaha. ****in starbucks. Have to target the chicks with the lower back tatts or fake nails. I have found girls with fake nails are generally just hornier.

    how did you get yours?

    -infrequent training
    -more frequent training
    -how many sets per bi's or tri's
    -what other muscles do you train them with vs. training them together
    -training intensity
    -volume
    -weight (heavy or lighter)
    From reading all of the posts you can probably tell two things. First, there's no universally accepted way to get big arms. And second, you can score with chicks at Starbuck's (which is true by the way).

    I have a dedicated arm day but I also work tri's on chest day. So, Saturday is chest day. Once I'm done with chest I'll do 5 sets of headbangers and then 5 sets of close-grip bench press both 10-12 reps.

    On arm day (Wednesday), I used to do straight bar curls but hurt my forearm and it's never been the same. So now I use the e-z curl bar and do 5 sets of 10-12 with whatever weight I can handle. It varies based on arm pain. I follow that with incline alt db's 3 x 10-12 and finally preacher for the same. My fav bicep exercise (other than straight bar) is incline alt db curls. For tri's I do pushdowns for 5 x 10-12, weighted dips for the same and then I finish with 1-arm pushdowns 3 x 10-12(I use the cable-crossover handles).

    My arms were at there best back when I kicked off arm day with straight bar curls. But I had to adapt. What I'm doing may not work for everyone but it works for me. Just play around with a bunch of different exercises and find what works best. When it seems to stop working then change it up.

    Good Luck Building The Guns!!
