I am 40, less than 1 year training. My bf is under control.
My body always respond better to a 5-8 range, with the last three being hard to reach. The 8-10 range, don’t make me grow and find it exhausting and body reducing. 3-5 helps strength in a slowly pace. I eat plenty, protein shakes, et al. increasing average of 0.4pounds of weight by week (7 months stats.). I alternate 2 week 5-8 and 1 week on 3-5 ranges.
About 2 months I started doing some pushups on morning, I saw some improvement on arms. this is a bodypart wich is always lagging. i decided to start a “arm day” on my routine. but, again, the most I work out my arm, the most it shrinks, if I don’t do direct work, it keeps growing, very slowly but certainly.
I have made two shock routines this year and both increased the arm girth.
some time ago a trainer insisted on using a higher rep routine wich leads me to the greater reductions on arms from wich I recovered later.
Any ideas on why does this happens? it is not important as an answer, it is just to twist it on my side.
I really want a huge body, but by now, i want thicker arms. Please don’t send me to the articles, I have tried plenty. i say. look my profiles pics and give me some advice.
Facts already know:
I am skinny compared to most people here.
I am eating plenty (most people surprise of my beeing skinny and eating half chicken in front of their eyes and belive me, I eat a lot).
I work hard and maybe hardest in my gym.
is there any cortisol/gh/testosterone matter to adjust?
Any ideas on what my approach should be?
