Let me start by saying that I was 6’2" and 170 in high school, so I absolutely know where you’re coming from.
my arms arent gaining as fast as the rest of my body and i am hurting for bigger guns![/quote]
I’m going to bet that you’re rowing less than 200, squatting and deadlifting under 225, and overhead pressing under 135. Am I close?
Also, as has been said, getting plenty of food is even more important than a better training plan.
With that said…
"What I’m saying, and what Hoffman, Poliquin, and plenty of other coaches are saying, is that in order to get your arm size into the high teens (or upwards of 45cm for my Euro brothers), you’ve got to be doing specific biceps and triceps work in addition to putting plenty of time and energy into squats, deadlifts, and other big exercises.
That might seem like common sense for more experienced lifters, but common sense is a rare commodity in the 15-to-22 year old gym member demographic. These are kids whose idea of lifting heavy involves quarter-rep shrugs with 30 pounds less than their bodyweight, but they’re exactly the guys who need to be deadlifting, rowing, and pressing more often than they hit the incline hammer curls and overhead one-arm cable extensions.
Hoffman couldn’t have said it more plainly: You can’t build a 17-inch arm on a 120-pound body. To build significantly bigger arms than you’ve got right now, you need to build a larger complete body, and the fastest path there requires a training plan that gives plenty of attention to the big lifts while also giving some attention to direct arm work, not the other way around."
