Ok, I see where you may be losing my whole point to this thread. No, I never said pumped- you said that. My issue is not muscly-body size. Read through the forums and threads here relating along the lines of this topic; 'ARMS do not DEVELOPE nor stay big' it's not a very uncommon topic.
I'm seeing in this website from other threads- muscle, OR post-muscle flabbiness - ARMS and CALVES of some people like myself lose much of their previous form they had after working out, very rapidly and/ OR take longer to deveope and seem to reach a plateau in terms at a not-too-big size- when all other body areas in comparison, developed substantially AND never shrank in their FORM size -much.
For example, with very little decrease, my thighs and chest DO retain their size and develope very well when I work out. My pecs are still big, even though I stopped bench pressing years ago, sure alot of it is flubber, but still the pec FORM is there as is a significant solid muscle form below that. It did NOT waste away like my arm and calf sizes do.
Again, this thread is about slower than upper arm/forearm/calf developement and form retention some of us have, even with solid workouts and good nutrition.
My topic includes form of these body parts in particular- since no other body parts show such shrinkage or resistance to develope 'normally' or better.
By 'hardish' workouts I mean 1 hour of going at it full throttle. A hard workout in my books is longer and 2 hours-ISH. Like I said ONCE AGAIN, I get excellent bulking results for other body parts with my 'hardish' workouts and such results hardly fade away with these areas so there is NO issue there.
I'm only curious to here from others if they are thin boned and and have the same 'arm issues'. Your responses seem to indicate I'm seeking answers in another area. I'm clearly looking for input from others based upon my "investigative" questions in my initial post and not an argument.
Remember; My Chest and Thighs in very good shape/size and am satisfied with that-just thinking out loud why for a few of us arms grow slow/shrink fast in comparison.
