Pecs Alot Bigger Than Biceps, anyone?
yeah i'm basically just wondering if this is the case for anyone else. everything is running smoothly, except my pecs, delts and traps seem to be getting bigger as far as i can tell, my arms have grown a touch, but nothing near in comparison. im mainly bitching, cause i still have abit of a BF problem and i'm looking fat-ish in a shirt, which i ain't liking.
i should be doing alot more bi and tri's, that's the obvious awnser, but any other suggestions to help with this.

i would love for my pecs to be bigger. my arms, traps, and delts far over power my upper pecs. drives me crazy...

not alot but I always get the "get a bra" joke from all my friends. I got solid arms but my pecs by far are one of the first thing that gets noticed. Ive always had a big chest, moreso the chest is also the last place i lose bodyfat so, it looks like i bench a hell of alot more than i can,.... sometimes it can be a curse.

You need to isolate the upper arm during your movements it sounds like you are using some shoulder and losing the growth opportunity , its tough to take the shoulder out of the movement but it can be done.

6'2" at 172# and youve got excessive body fat?
sounds like youre problem may have more to do with perception...
anyway, blast at those bi's and tri's, work them and they will grow.

Some people are just barrel chested. Unlike some guys hat only go to the gym to workout chest. There are guys at my gym that do it 3 times a week. Pitiful.

I wish this is the case with me. I have stopped working out my arms every week, to every two weeks instead. Thrown in a extra day for chest to over compensate this.

my pecs are by a far the most prominant, almost out of proportiontial muscles. I do not train them anymore either...I think its just genetic. I lack in my lats.

Also, I've found working in the 10-15 rep range for arms can really help to isolate the muscles and take out the aid from supporting muscles (forearms, shoulders, back, etc.). A concentrated stretch and contraction seem more important than total load in isolation work such as the arms.

Choose a weight that will not max out your tris for 10 reps, but hit you bi's heavier so that by the third set the bi's are getting maxed out by rep 7-8 with the remainder being forced.
Start with compound. eg narrow grip bench s/s w. bb curl
You should only need one other superset. Skull crushers or dips for the tri movement, seated db curls or standing hammer curls for the bi movement.

My chest has a tendency to grow much more rapidly than my biceps, and for that matter my lats, but I think a lot of my problem has to do with my genetics. That also may be the case for you as well. When you train your biceps, do you train any other muscle groups on the same day? If so, which is prioritized in your workout? For example, if you trained biceps on the same day that you train back, do you do back first or biceps?
I noticed my triceps began to lag behind when I trained them in the same workout as chest. Just a thought.
