    why 2 arm days if they get a partial workout whenever you do chest and back? wouldn't you rather use that day to focus on something that releases more testosterone, like squats, or bench? besides being 2 of the 3 best mass builders, they would really help you use your youth to your advantage. just my 2 cents. unless your arms are 10-12 inches i don't see the point.

    if your arms aren't growing, you're not doing one of these four exercises, or not using enough weight for them:

    close grip bench (and i mean close)
    weighted dips
    weighted chin ups
    barbell curl

    not bagging you mate but your arms are 14", but you are only 71kgs, my honest advice work the big exercises sqaut dead becnh o/head press, throw in some auxillary stuff for tris/bis and calves, eat a well balanced diet consuming a few more calories then you need, and not only will your body grow but so will those stubborn arms.

    hrm... then make sure your form is correct, and your post workout protein shake has carbs in it. if you're training them right and eating properly, it should be impossible not to grow.

    you could add 30g of maltodextrin (sp) to this also.

    and are you eating 3500 cal or 4000 cals which is it.

    mate its not rocket science but i have personally found keeping a track of what i eat is a huge help.

    people always under estimate how many cals they are eating in my experience, you only have to keep a food log for a week, sit down add it all up, weigh yourself at the start and at the end.

    if you gain weight you are eating enough, if you do not gain weight well then.........
