    first of all great job man! It shows a lot of people that have just started lifting and come here to get PH advice that a good diet, hard work, good workout routine, and a little creatine and Protein can go a long way.

    What does your workout schedule look like? what are you doing for arm lifts?

    Great progress so far! As for arm size, pullups (slow), close grip bench, skull crushers. Try to vary your training a bit in the arms if you aren't satisfied. Switch up the reps and weight a bit. If you are staying in the 10-12 rep range right now, try going down to 5 with more weight for a while. You will find your "guns groove" eventually lol. It is also possible that you may just be over training them.

    i was always doing 4X10-12 but now im trying the 5x5 routine have been doing it for about 2 weeks
    Bicep:
    5x5 hammer curls
    5x5 alternate incline bicep curl
    5x5 close grip easy bar curl
    5x5 concentration curl

    Tricep:
    5x5 close grip bench press
    5x5 overhead dumbbell extensions
    5x5 tricep pushdowns
    5x5 skull crushers

    also having short biceps defiantly does not help and makes my arm look really small where the forearm ends and bicep starts

    Good job brah.. stick with it.

    I didnt make a lot of progress in the first year, but after 2 years of training you find out how your body works and will start to make real good progress. Go another year and ill bet you dont look like the same person..
    Suffer now.. and live like a champion later.

    Your bench press gains are insane! Literally took me years to go up that much! Great job man! Arms take a while to build! They don't grow as fast! Just keep hitting em hard! I can see your arms have grown quite a bit though! Keep it up! You are doing superb!
