Lol my problem isn’t impatience, ive gained 15 kilos so far and all my lifts have gone up enormously and I have put on a lot of size. I am going clothes shopping soon because shorts are becoming tight and t shirts are tight on my back, sometimes on my chest/shoulders. Everything is progressing besides arms which have NOT BUDGED in a solid 4 months. I think I have been patient enough.
My current lifts for SL are 210lb deadlift, 155lb squat, 95lb bench. (6’2, 150lb) When I was training at home for about 4 months (ive been lifting 5 months total, only just joined a gym) I had no squat rack so I had to deadlift + ohp the weight up to my shoulders. So therefore I was squatting light and didn’t make much progress. My squat has gone up 40lb this month and my quads are blowing up, deadlift is progressing good however grip is becoming a problem so I have added static holds to one of my workouts.
Everything is, and has been progressing how it should besides arms. When I row my bis are being hit the most because theyre weak, bench press i rarely even feel a chest burn even though I use a slightly wide grip. Arms are my limiting factor in everything and they just do not want to grow.
Martimoro I don’t know how you can say I don’t have a lagging body part when everything is growing and getting stronger and has been for a while, and one body part has remained the same lmfao. That is the definition of a lagging body part.[/quote]
Dude, look at your lifts. Not trying to be mean, but a lot of your progress is just getting your body used to the movements. A 95 lb bench? That’s why your arms aren’t growing man, even though you’re making progress you aren’t exactly blowing up in the strength department. Be patient, every single person thinks their arms are lagging.
You’re 150 lbs at 6 foot 2, you’re legs and everything is growing because they’ve never ever had anything close to a stimulus like your giving it now. It’s a pretty dramatic stimulus difference for your legs between doing something like running for sports/day to day living and consistently adding resistance on movements like a squat and deadlift.
Keep pushing, keep eating. You’re on the right track. Keep doing SOME arm work, they will grow. You’re too early in the game to be able to say you have a lagging bodypart, especially at your strength levels.
