My arms are def one of the laggers. It has alot to do with their overall length. I am about a hair under 6’2 but my wingspan is slightly over 6’6. This gives me a large disadvantage in terms of arm size and growth.
As of late I have been chanding some things up in order to bring about so new progress.
Focusing on the long head of the tricep is my main concern. The beefy look in this area has always eluded me. Due to the way I am built it has always been super difficult for me to really thrash this area.
Decline Dumbbell Tricep and Straight Bar extensions seem to be helping alot. This is not like a typical skull crusher. With this exercise the weight is lifted more outward away from the body. This stretches and places alot of tension on the long head of the tricep.
For biceps I have continued to use all straight bars as oppsoed to ez-curl bars. The straight bar allows me to keep my pinky at the same height as my thumb, whereas the ezbar doesn’t. This has an impact on the contraction that i feel. When the pinky is level or elevated of the thumb, the turning motion with your palm facing up, the bicep can fully contract.
For forearms, i have been using the fatter bar to do all my forearms curls. I think I am ready to implement fat bar curls as well. This new grip has definitely given me sore spots where i previously haven’t ltfe.
Here is a photo. so far so good, still plenty of time till my next show… June 2012
