Excerpt: What would be the best exercises for arrm growth. Imdoing hammer curls, bench,and lateral raise for deltoids, and squats.to target arms. should I try something for rear deltoids and work my triceps more?

    Re: looking to increase arms

    I wouldn't be surprised if you get flamed for posting this. Here's some quick suggestions to give the guys on here a better idea:
    - What are your stats? Age/Height/Weight
    - How long have you been working out?
    - Post your diet
    - Post your overall routine, if you're neglecting deadlifts, squats, bench, and OHP then you need to fix that.

    ^^^ agreed
    i didn't get anything serious done in the gym until i started deadlifting and overhead pressing.
    it amazed me how little my strength on seated db presses carried over into overhead pressing. it's a different world altogether.

    you need to be doing close grip bench for triceps. and although i dont do any dedicated bicep work, i do find that close grip, palms facing me, pullups / lat pulldowns hit my bis the hardest

    I stopped doing any sort of bicep curl and have seen the most growth ever in my 8 years of lifting.

    thanks,So when you stoped what lifts did you do? or were you overworking your biceps before you stoped.

    I focused on variations of pull ups and chin ups, dips, different types of pushups, and deadlifting.

    Re: looking to increase arms

    Heavy Barbell Curls, strict form with a few sets of ecentrics
    Also alternating seated Db raises gives me good growth for biceps!
    Triceps, cant go past weighted Dips, and/or close grip bench, finsihed off with seated pushdows or skull crushers mmmmmmmm
    Dont forget all your basic compounds to compliment your isolations, like squats, deads,bench, Chins etc

    Re: looking to increase arms

    my arms have always been small, even though they are about 17" 17 1/4" right now. I never do any isolation for them. I need to start

    I think im not like most ppl though. I would do compound movements, and if you still cant get growth from heavy compound lifts, start adding in isolation.
