Sorry if this is the wrong section, but I will go ahead and post anyway. I first started lifting at 16 and I am now 19. In 2009, I started working out at a new gym and I took some measurements. At the time of the measurements I was 17, 5'9 and 155lbs. Shoulders: 18 inches, Chest/Lats: 38 inches, Biceps: 14-1/2 inches, Waist: 30-1/2 inches, Quadriceps: 22-1/2 inches, Calves: 14-1/2 inches. By the measurements I was pretty much anorexic and now I consider myself "skinny" at 19yo, 6'0 180lbs. The thing is though, today I measured my arms cold, not pumped and my arms straight down. They measured in at 13 1/2. So I have gained 25ish lbs yet my arms have shrank.
Also, I have thought about this before and it may be my workout, but when I was 17 my workouts were upper/lower 5 days a week. Since then I have always been on set routines and changing it up every time I plateau usually around 8-10 weeks. Sometimes 6. Also all my lifts have increased yet my arms are smaller, lol. I dont get it.
At the time of the above measurements I could bench 185 once, and deadlift 225, now I bench 255 for 5 and deadlift around 400, so I dont understand why I would lose mass on my arms. I wrote a lot but I got it all out, haha, sorry for the rant. Advice or ideas?
Edit: PS. To sum it up. If you couldnt tell from what I was saying, when I was 17 my arms looked freakishly large compared to my body, now I guess I have outgrown them and they look freakishly small.
