WTF is wrong with my arms?

1. seriosuly dont associate to me in thsi thread. ill direct my comments to the people who i feel can learn from them and look at them as opinions rather than a command or the end of all. I am not wantgin to be impressed and i doubt he will try to do that. If i wanna be impressed ill go see a strongman event or watch a pro BBer workout or some other event i think is worth it.
2. Navy, thats fine, it sounds like you put alot on the joint so its understandable, if it never happens its cool. Like i said nothing to prove to me and i dont think im better than the next man, my dad told me once.." dont be bothered that youre not the best, biggest, fastest, smartest strongest or anything, cause there will always be someone ahead of you."
It sounds harsh but its the truth, do what you do and thats all that you need to do. I think Smith machine show a little, still takes strength to move the weight.
3. I never said anyone said you should work chest shoulders same day, i just recomend in my experience its not a hot idea. The exercise CAN be a bit bicep taxing, but your elbows DO NOT BEND which put the weight load on the shoulder. It does help pump up biceps a bit. I personaly LOVE the exercise. I get a great line between the front delt and start of my outer upper chest doing them.

Updated pics.... After a 3 week cut,, i did hate to lose power but i think i look better so im good. My biggest question, do the legs look better?

Yeah man you've definitely made some leg gains, especially in your quads.

Look man, at your stage in the game, it is my opinion that you should focus on your big lifts to get bigger and all around stronger. Weighted pull ups, dead lifts, squats, bench, overhead press, cleans, weighted dips... you do not need to worry about your arms right now, you are perfectly proportionate. put in the hard work where others do not and you will set yourself apart from 99% of all other males. Keep up the good work

I want to see the video of 300 lbs squat ATG.

I want to see this 300 Bench, 405 Squat. I weigh less than you, but look bigger and can't throw those numbers up.
When I saw your first legs pics I was going to ask if you even train legs.

Looks like you just need to SFW and increase your protein intake. Generally when someone is 'strong' and a 'not big' it has a lot to do with diet.
If you want to be bigger, eat as if you're already that size but eat clean and SFW and the mass will come. Be prepared to put on a little bodyfat in the short term but over the course of 3-6 months this shouldn't be an issue.
I'd bet money that diet is your problem, that and the fact that your form is probably for **** on some of the big compound exercises - hence quoting partial squat numbers in terms of weight moved.
Lift the weight you can do with perfect form for 5-8 reps a set max, eat right, problem solved.
If any one of the above isn't right, you'll not go anywhere fast.

a good diet and a lot of food is a precurser to stregnth. your tris do seem to be of an ok size but your bis are lagging alot of people go for compound but thats bul****.. diferent parts of your biceps are used at different angles or phases withing a certain lift. use good form make sure that when you exercise your bi your are not moving momentum or any thing, use heavy weights and light untill they are massacred.. my bis are my favorite muscles i put alot into them and get alot out. i hope this helps rather than state the obvious..you know all this just make sure its all in check!

I would guess 13-15% on BF and make just do some arnold curls on you're biceps to give them a peak. They just need more peak in the shape to make them look bigger

Like me you have low insertions on your biceps which means they look okay unflexed but you dont get the massive peak like other people. Your arms are proportional to your body so I am assuming you are looking to fine tune a little. Start hitting that outer head hard. Narrow straight bar curls, hammer curls, concentration curls etc. It will come with time.

yea im calling bull**** on the 405 squat... more like knee bend, and if you could squat 405 ur deadlift reps would be 315-405 range with ease not 225..315 power clean? hmm nfl linebackers have the highest cleans and ive seen some 240 pound freaks do 380 range and ur claiming 315... and the 315 bench bull**** as welll... DO full ROM Lifts and post maxes
