You may be 5'2 with a 3 inch **** and think that it's big because your only 5'2 but in the end, you still only have a 3 inch ****. Would a girl think that just because you are 5'2 your 3" **** feels big? No. She'd still think it's little. You may look good in a mirror and have striations come out of your ******* but 15" is 15" and when you compare yourself to someone who has 18-19-20" arms, you will feel small, regardless of how "RIPPED" you are and how "PRETTY" they look. So again, continue to gain muscle and keep up the hard work and you will begin to feel bigger and better about your arms.
    I dont quite understand what youre saying here.... youre comparing penis sizes with arms i think. the difference is that u dont f**k anything with your arms. lol

    hahaha...oh man.
    everyone chill and put the test. away.

    All M16 was saying is the kid/guy shouldnt be stressed over the size of the arms yet just get them to be looking good and where he wants to be.

    Bodybuilding IS an optical illusion game, i dont think anyone has ever walked and stage and yelled..."i got the biggest arms here..." and the judges hand him the award. Its all about portions and shape. The numbers are all in people heads. I have had people guess mine where 18"~ and last i remember i was at 16 3/4".

    to the OP. I would focus on movement, because(no offense here) if you are moving that weight you listed, you should be looking a bit bigger or more lean at least. NOT saying its impossible, but if you were to adjust training, youd be able to build more of the "look"

  3. Exactly my point...Thank You. I'll take a hard vascular 16" arm over a soft 19" arm any day, and so will judges...Bodybuilding is not so much about BF%'s, Measurements, how much you lift etc...As MentalTwitch said it's about creating the illusion of being big, shredded and symmetrical. Yes and MentalTwitch I would have also guessed your arms at 18" as well....sheesh if I just had your shoulders and arms I would be good.

  4. How many people with 19 inch arms do you hear complaining about there arms then? Find me that post please.

  5. Not the point that I was trying to make to him...My point to him was do not get caught up in measurements because they mean nothing !!!...At his height a lean hard 15" arm can look great and not small at all...That was my point.

    If you read my post again I never said anything about someone complaining about having a 19inch arm...I said a bodybuilding judge would pick a hard lean 16" arm over a soft 19" any day...As MentalTwitch pointed out, on stage it does not matter what your measurements are, or what your trainer said your BF% is...It only matters what you look like and the illusion that you create.

    if i didnt have to screw with my penis....i would prefer a nice small, toned, vascular penis. does that answer ur question

  7. OK i maxed today with 305 a$$ to ankles. So i hope that clears up the squat lie i told. 405 will not happen for a while going that deep but it felt really good

    lol.. thats actually pretty funny

  9. We're talking about 15 inches flexing right? My arms are <15 relaxed, but they're like 16 1/4 flexed.

  10. okay, vid of 305 ATG please.

    I will give lots of reps..........

    IMO< Its not how much you can lift, its how much you look like you can lift.

    I'm a weak biatch , so thats my only consolation. lol

  11. Navyrigger, I used to do biceps on pull day after back. I got a program from an old book titled Secrets of Advanced Bodybuilders. Anyway, the strategy was to pre-exhaust the biceps by doing the larger muscle groups first, back in this case, before doing any isolation.

    Like most things in lifting, this worked initially but after a few months I had to change routines because I was not making progress. I changed it up and continued doing biceps after back on pull day, but also allocated another week day just for arms.

    Then I went on a 5X5 bicep routine and that worked for a bit, but had to change again.

    This stopped working after a few months, so I changed it up again after re-reading some info on arm development, and I learned I was neglecting my triceps for overall arm development, so I started hitting tris heavier.

    This stopped working after a few months and I changed up the bicep routine to include a drop set at the end (going to failure) and that really stimulated the bicep again, and it now feels like I'm getting a good workout again.

    Anyway, long story short, someone already mentioned focusing on very basic lifts like squat which are fundamental. So you may want to simply rotate your arm routines to keep your muscle guessing. If you want the bicep peak, supinated BB curls have worked well for me.

    I'll also share my failure in growing muscle - not eating enough. I get my ass kicked at the gym lifting hard, but often neglect to eat at least up to maintenance so my muscles don't grow as fast as I would like. Don't do what I do - you got to eat to grow. Kristofer68SS already gave you a lead "12 weeks-Starting Strength program,,,,,,lots of cals and lots of rest" go with it.

    Best of luck.

    exactly, but alot of people dont understand that. theyre like "why cant u lift that tire and put it in the back of my truck....i thought u were a big bodybuilder!?".....im like thats not what bodybuilding is, thats powerlifting.

    powerlifting is just an excuse route for people with too much bodyfat....originally i bet they all try to be bodybuilders. but once they realize they dont have the metabolism, they take the powerlifting route. thats what ive noticed, no pun intended

    nah, some guys can just move large amounts of weight. I believe its more than just mind or matter. Although that mentality has its merits, at least until injury. lol

    I see it in the gym all the time. Guys lifting alot of weight for their size. Not just fat powerlifters. 1 "fat"guy in the gym doing that, huge guy- lifted the most on dead and bench i have personally seen. 505 on bench and 900+ or so on deads......NUTS.

    Others like myself, do not have that gift. Genetics. Small ass ankles and wrists. lol

    Its not an excuse, with training and diet I have gotten alot stronger without a doubt. But to say im strong, nope.......

    starting strength is a good one. pack a lunch and leave everything in the gym and you WILL grow.

    Good luck.

    small ankles and wrist are good...u dont want fankles

  15. Quote Originally Posted by orangutan View Post

    I could weigh 250 and wouldnt get fankles........

    my calves might grow though.......lol

  16. I got small wrist but it really makes my forearms look huge

  17. your legs look disproportionately small compared to chest/delts

  18. I am having a hard time with my legs. I'm in the military so always doing long runs never really let me put on to much mass. I dont run as much now so the deads once a week an squats every 3 days with a 5x5 routine is starting to help. But the ruck sack runs did make my legs really strong for there size. I think i could easily put 10 to 15 pounds on my legs.

    there is always an excuse not to do legs. I neglected them a long time too. I was in the military as well. My excuse wasnt because I had to run though. I just straight up did not care. I would recommend doing them because the squat really makes you feel so much stronger in everday life.

  20. Oh ya bro, I hit them very hard now!

  21. Go heavier on Deads and other back exercises,... and your bis will blow up (that is considering you already have a good bi workout.... ).

  22. as for the 19" arms comment. I decided to put a link of a person with 19" arms who would much rather have 16" shreded arms.

    . As for Navyrigger, I just wanted to say don't worry about how much weight you lift. I think this has already been said. If you are into powerlifting then that is great, but for bodybuilding focus on form and how your muscles feel/grow. I had to learn this lesson on back training. Besides deads I go light on everything, and just have perfect form. I also wanted to add that I think your bis look porportional. Just make sure you are eating right, training to grow muscle (and not just lifting more weight).

  23. Actually those are probably 16" fat arms. Nice try though.

    Hard to have these arguments too because different people want different things.

    And the thing about the powerlifter/bodybuilder difference. A large majority of the time if the powerlifter cut down he'd blow the bodybuilder out of the water in term of thickness and size. Read up on the fundamentals of DC training and you will see all these things first hand, the guy who writes most of it is Dante. He will instill a different belief system in your mind in regards to the best way to grow and be as big/strong as you can be. If you dont want to be as big/strong as you can be then dont come on here and complain about your 15" arms. If you have to blow up to 230 at 20%bf then cut down to 210 at 8% then so be it. The thing is by the time you went to 230 and back to 210 if you went the route people on here think they should go you'd probably only be up to 180. All a matter of what you want though.

  24. It's funny how so many people think that weight lifted isn't correlated with muscle size. Sorry, but the difference between a "powerlifter" and a "bodybuilder" has more to do with DIET than it does with training.

  25. I hope you didn't think I was saying powerlifting is a waste... I have mad respect for it. I mean look a johnny jackson haha. For me, I have personally quit worrying about how much weight I was using and focused on quality isolation of the muscles (I still try to go heavy though), this way I grew much more. I will look into the guy you were talking about, but from my friends who are into powerlifting, it seems that they are not focusing in on the specific muscles for lifting. They focus on doing what the f ever they can to get that dang weight up haha.
