Again.... What is your leg training like??? Forget about how big your calves are. I believe you are devaluing how important training the lower body is to all around growth.

Triceps is the bigger portion of arms.
Any overhead -and floor DB extensions work for me.
Weighted chin ups -and one armed (heavy) rows.
Almost no curling besides some concentration curls once a week.
Life is fair it's your expectations that aren't.

Don't discourage him it's beneficial for the rest of us. I train my legs far less than upper body but they've always been a strong point. My calves have always been bigger than arms.

Come on guys, not cool. He's got a goal and is asking for help on how to get there.

Its physiological. Your upper body is limited by the foundation it has to support the whole structure. Think of a tree trunk and its limbs. Top heavy or overloading limps will lay the tree down on the ground to die.
Gaining 20lbs of muscle can add up to an inch on your arms. Bigger stronger legs can support a bigger stronger back which can support bigger stronger arms...

Agree for most of us there's only so much disproportion we can achieve before we hit a wall in progress. Ofcourse steroids can do a great job at helping build a disproportionate physique. This is where the jacked dudes with tooth pick legs come in. Jokes aside I don't mind if he wants the skinny jeans with jacked body look to each his own.

Hmm very interesting responses, and its fine you guys are not discouraging me by any means, you guys actually have a point, i might look into something like high reps or reach a stage where if i felt im strong enough i will not increase weight to limit legs, but i will start to work them in some way off or on cycle soon, and for the arms i think im gonna try 4 sets of 20 reps 3 exercises for biceps and triceps and if that doesnt work ill do like 2 exercises 7 sets each(14 sets for each bicep and tricep) of around 8-10 reps.

Even do a bit on the leg press machine and some calf raises each week mate just don't neglect your legs altogether

I have been very frustrated with lack of arm growth. At 6'4 250 my arms are stuck at only 18 inches. I actually have stopped training just arms and now just do them once a week with time under tension and rarely hit them. They get crushed in my heavy compound lifts. So far I have noticed my arms staying fuller even while prepping but my arms are my most frustrating muscle group.
