I love this!!! Some of the people that have dissed me for slating modern bodybuilding, the information overload etc etc, have posted on hear with 14 inch guns!!! Just about strong enough to curl their ipod, and front raise their hair brush.
Advice if you have 13 - 14 inch guns at 185 pounds. Start doing chin ups/ pull - ups 5 x5, dips, then add weight slowly. Do overhead pressing and rowing. Use a thick bar as well. You do not need some super tempo all angle what ever what ever - If you can chin up with at least 20 kilos strapped on you your arms have to grow. No question.
I can do 5 chins or 5 dips with a 45lb plate. and i have the smallest arms posted. (given, im 17, and have trained 6 months) but still kinda disproves that theory. 45lbs is just over 20 kilos. Then again, i weigh 160 with 13’s. [/quote]
I am about 220 lbs and do pull-ups with 2 plates for sets of 5.
My biceps blow - my arms are a hair under 17 but they don’t look all that great (though, not “bad”) with a shirt on because it is mostly triceps.
I do a shitload of heavy pulling movements, and nothing made me feel my arms as much as CT’s biceps specialization routine outlined in his last article (Thib’s Quick Tricks). I’m giving that a go for the next two months to see what it can do for me.
I was fooled in the very beginning, but it’s so fucking obvious when you stop taking the advice of “gurus” without any independent thought- if you want big arms, work your fucking arms.
You’ll thank yourself later. Seriously.
