One Inch to Arms In 3.5 Months


I've added about an inch to my arms in 3 1/2 months. Is that a good rate or is my growth retarded a bit?

Chest was around 40 or so..I sadly couldnt find the previous measurement - but im pretty sure thats higher.


For such a small bodypart that's a great gain.


Assuming he wasn't measuring 12" before implying that he simply found out what food was.


length or circumference?


What's the program? Did you gain weight? Tell us please.

Cheers Rick


Every once in awhile, someone says something that makes me laugh out loud. Great times, great times.

I'm about to hit the gym atm - be back in a few hours and I'll toss up the arm workout.


People grow in sperts, it's not linear, so don't expect it to last forever.


I can't stand a lot of your responses, but that was unarguably funny :slight_smile:


What a coincidence...I can't stand a lot of your responses either! We're like...twins and shit.

Edit: I've put on about 20lb's of muscle and around 5-7lb's of fat.


It's all relative. Your biceps don't float around in the air. They are attached to the rest of your physique. Thus, any progress made in a certain area has to be judged against the whole physique. The key thing is to look at size ratios between body parts. If you managed to put an inch on your bi's while keeping the rest of your physique unchanged, then that's awesome. If, however, you put 3 inches onto your waist simultaneously, then that sucks, and you probably looked better before. Individual measurements don't mean shit. Bodybuilding is about creating visual illusions.
