My arm growth has stalled for about three months now. Everything else has grown since I started lifting.
Chest- Started at 40in, now is at 46in.
Shoulders- 49in.....now 53in
Arms- 12in....now 16in
Calves- 16in....now 16.5in
Quads- still at 25in
This has all been from about 45lbs of growth (180-225). I am still gaining weight, and the past three months I have gone from 210 to 225, however arms have stayed at 16in the whole time.
Current Training- I have two arm days a week (not always, but vast majority). One negative thing to note about my training is that I do not train legs. Reason being having 16in calves at 180lbs, and 12in arms looks absolutely ridiculous. Legs have always been a strength. Am starting to train legs very soon though, just wanted to get my upper body into proportion, now that I am 225lbss and 16in arms; my proportions are much better. So here is what my arm training looks like.
-Cross body hammer curls- 3 sets of 10
-Concentration curl-3 sets of 12 (was doing preacher curl, but gym removed it)
-EZ bar/Barbell curl with 3 second negative- 2 set of 8
-Incline skull crushers-3 sets of 12
-Dips- 2 sets of 8
-Rope push downs- 4 sets of 12
*For the second workout of the week, I do a variation of every movement. Visually my arms are looking better (more defined, more "mature"). However they are not getting bigger.
Current Diet- Lots, I am growing everywhere except arms and steadily putting on weight with what seems to be pretty much no fat (at 6'4 225 is nothing to brag about, however I have kept my waist at 30in while gaining 45lbs). Each week I am adding more food to my plate, and the scale moves.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
