    Hahaha. Went on their website and I'm still unsure of what exactly the 4-ad rde does? Also I'm curious of the benefits of stacking this with helladrol? Thanks man, the dark side sure is tempting...

    Halodrol has a tendency to cause lethargy and lower libido in many cases. 4-ad is a DHEA metabolite (4-DHEA) that converts to test which will boost energy, mood and libido. Make me AND the girlfriend happy. Pretty excited, actually. I work my ass off naturally so I know I'll see results.

    Another good thing to stack helladrol with would be something that converts to DHT like 5-Alpha.

  3. I'm 6'4" Never had big arms either.

    But when I picked up a Harbinger dip belt I started mixing in weighted chins. +25# and +35# chins for 5 sets of 10 twice per week mixed into my 5/3/1 program. Followed by weighted dips +45# and +55# for 5 sets of 20. Nothing else I have done in over 20 years of lifting has added arm size as quickly. Also these exercises give my arms and shoulders a strong balanced look. Still not monster arms, but I am really happy with how they look after adding the dip belt.

  4. Thats great advice right there. I use chins every back day, the more I bulk, the harder it gets.... the more I cut, the more I can do haha.

    Dips are something I really need to toss back in now that I'm over some shoulder discomfort I was having. I guess there is a reason people used to call them "upper body squats".

    My gym has a few weight-able belts I am going to start trying. I only do about 10-12 chins at a time as it is and about 15 dips so it would be a lower rep scheme than you but always good to trick it up a bit.

  5. I feel there needs to be a thread strictly for us tall lifters!!
    Progress leads to success.

  6. If you have the time just to focus on arms, theres a program by Ben pakulski called 21 days to bigger arms.
    While i have not done this program, as i cant dedicate the time, bens other prgrams have been good to me. He knows his stuff. It might be worth persuing.

    I'm in the same boat. I feel my arms arn't big enough. My problem is tri size. I work them hard, but i just find it hard to make them grow.

    My current routine for tri's is
    2x a week
    close grip bench supersetted with pushdowns: 4 setsx15x12x10x8
    Kickbacks suppersetted with Machine dips: 4 setsx15x12x10x8

    Increasing in weight as the reps reduce.

    Is this enough?

    Looks good, iv'e really found that adding bands on my close grip has helped grow my tri's with the addition of heavy skullcrushers.

  8. I've been incorporating some rest pauses in a lot of my routine and am seeing results (even with my iso stuff). Hitting 6-8 sets of heavy 5 repped skulls with 15 sec rest has gotten my attention. Same with heavy dips, I'm really just knocking off my rest time. I notice I sweat a lot more and put up almost the same weight as 45 sec rest. Just makes me work harder

    I feel tall guys really have to do more isolation stuff than the normal guy who's arms grow from compounded lifts. I know for a fact my body gets big from compounds but my arms show little improvement. Compound work is vital, yes, but if you want anything to grow, the best thing to do is work it directly. No smokes and mirrors here... Flame away if you think compounds make everyone's arms big.

    Patience and consistency

    How thick are your wrists OP?I thought I had a hard time filling out at my height but I'm a short ass compared to you's lol

  10. Also nice to see another comment you made about cycles and your PCT. So your not natty after all. Maybe you'll never have big arms then?

    Its not diet (I'll gain belly fat from overeating a clean diet before my arms grow). I was really thinking I need to do what seems practical, WORK MORE SETS. Been training for 3 years and have gone from 170- 210lbs all natty. I've recently completed the 4 weeks to big arms by T-nation (can't post link yet) ... some results.

    I mostly need to come to terms that I don't have great arm genes and will probably never ever have 20" pipes but it won't stop me from trying. I'm sitting at 15" now and honestly look like I've come a long way (believe it or not @ 13.5") I bench about 250 1RM and squat that about 15x on a good day. I'm not entirely weak for being this tall and lean.

    Just looking for input on things that have helped other people like me get bigger arms. Frequency? Sets? I'm ready to just hit arms 2x a week.... and hard. I have lots of compound movements in my routine.
    Okay im going to give you 3 exercises that will increase the size of your arms . Biceps atleast.

    1st and the easiest are reverse curls. Easy to execute too. Trains the neglected head.

    2nd is... 21s . Most effective for peak. Can even be done with light weight preacher style.

    3rd and most important for me personally. ..weighted chins with full extension and pause at the bottom. This will rip your biceps to shreds.

    Hey buddy, welcome to November.

    Arms are definitely bigger but no, I'll never have huge arms. I'm like a basketball player.

    Thanks for your concern?? Sorry, I'm lost man.... not sure of your point.

    Thanks buddy but this thread is out dated. That guy just started it up again for some reason. I actually use what you are saying and you are not lying sir, I've really shaped my arms in the 10-11 months this thread has sat stagnant.

    I use Zottmans a lot and they have made my forearms crazy veiny and thicker. Another awesome one for peaks are guillotine curls man. Kills the peak of my bis because I just wasn't used to the motion. Actually gave me a little scoop on my bicep top that I can start to see a shadow on when I'm laying down watching TV before bed. Fun to notice the small things of your body changing. Its the small things in life! I now have veins going across my bis and delts onto my chest from this year. I'll always be a lean guy but at least I look much better haha

    I just gotta keep it up and get stronger and stronger.

    Remember too, a cut and ripped 16" arm will appear to be quite a bit bigger than a chubby uncut 18" even if it measure less.
    Most people used to think Zane's arms were bigger than they actually taped.

    Yea that was 9 months ago and I've probably added .5 inches but I'm also much leaner today so the look much bigger having a vascular presence. Looong road!
