So without a pump my shoulders,chest and back really dwarf my arms, and it's taking a toll mentally.
My training is powerlifting based but with accessory movements for aesthetics. So my arms gain a lot of size and vascularity(obviously) after a pump but so much so that when I walk in the door my friends will tell me "man you really need to catch up with your arms to the rest of your upper body" to when I leave random people are asking what I do to have such impressive arms. I understand pumps change you to some extent but I get serious changes after.
Anyways I guess I'm just wondering if my arms will ever be a comparable size without me having to do movements first? I guess I'm just looking to increase the actual muscle size and stop just filling them up with blood. Iv been training 2 years religiously and maybe I just need another 2 before I get the results I want... Thanks
