preexhaustion of the left bi before a back workout. Extra reps and sets on left for bis/tris and trying extra hard to focus on form and not giving all the weight to the right on any compound exercise through the week....
conversly my left pectoral is also larger then my right for the same reason.. the larger right arm has been taking away from the pecs taking all the weight and now have to do extra exercises (namely close fly since it eleminates the arm mostly) for my right pec... its not so noticable though like the arms.

seated incline db partial curls.... sets of 20, 15, 15, 10, (cut weight in half) to failure
just tried these sets the other night, and i was really impressed at the work you can get done with lighter weights...so if you re one of the guys who lifts heavy and cant get the results you want, try giving this a shot

Its 4 exercises into 2 supersets every half hour. (A superset is doing both exercises together without a break, so you would do, for example, 8 BB curls, followed immediately by 8 Tricep pushdowns, rest for 30 secs to 2 mins, then repeat)

that all day arms shiz looks retarded... if pple actually add size to there arms with that routine it's nothing more than glycogen/water/fat
best routine i'v found for arms is having a seperate arm's day, and rotating sets with bi's and tri's... strength should be pretty equal between two, and if one is lagging then that can stall growth
so it would be...
set 1 - DB Curls
Set 2- Skull Crushers
Set 3 - DB Curls
Set 4 - Skull crushers
after 3-4 heavy sets of each your arms are so swollen it's rediculous
but no matter what your routine is your gonna have to be bulking to add size to your arms... 5lbs of bodyweight should give you a half inch on your arms if you training them correctly

2x a week heavy heavy barbell cheat curls, 5x5, same thing with close grips. Then I do a minimum of 12 sets of other exercises for both bis and tris in the 8-10 rep range with strict form. But heavy barbell curls and close grips are the "meat and potatoes" of building big arms.

another note, i didn't start at twice a week. I used to do this 1x a week b/c of how sore I was and worked my way up to a higher frequency.

to get big arms build massive tri's. Some of my friends think
build big tris I use those as burnouts id do two power sets
Reverse Grip Bench
Then use skull crushers Dumbell extentions etc to do 3 sets of 8-10 and then when i get to pulldowns 12-15 reps thats how i got my arms reallly big...well really big for me haha.
