I have been hitting the weights for 6 months now. starting weight 6’0" 201lbs, now 184lb. Compound excercises and isolation moves. I have put on some noticeable size in my shoulders (some shirts wont fit), chest and back, lost a few inches from my waist (pants are too big now). So i know I am making progress.
My arms were 13-1/2 when I started lifting.
My arms are 13" this morning. HELP!
This is what I have been doing:
Total Body Training:
Bench Press - Seated Row (supersets)
Dips - Pullups (supersets)
Squats - Romanian deadlifts (supersets)
Calf Raises on leg press machine
following a rest day/failure last rep of only one excercise (cycled)
One routine was:
Bench - Over head extensions
Seated row - bicep curls
I’ve done isolation stuff as well.
reps have varied from as low as 3 to 10
sets have been as low 4 and as high as 8
Never really moved past 20 sets a workout
I shake when i get home after my workout, and I’ve lost 17 lb’s of fat

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG!
I’m upset my arms got smaller, I want bigger arms, and I need help!
i have long forearms, short bicep/tricep muscles i guess… someone told me i had high muscle attachments on my biceps.
I was told i need more shoulder strength, more trap strength, the responded fast to training, but my arms are still pencil thin. I so frustrated I was gonna offer a local trainer $1000 to put 2 to 3 inches on arms. I need help.
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG HERE?
