Iam very new to bodybuilding and am trying to build some muscle...
On another website I read that my tricep should be 2x the size of my bicep
Arm size = 2/3(tricep) + 1/3(bicep)
My first question is...Is the above statment true?
Secondly, I need some help developing a tricep work out. The only exercise I know of currently is skullcrushers and havent rlly seen any amazing results that would allow my arm to meet the ratios I mentioned above.
Simply looking for some tips/advice or even a workout routine that might allow my arms to reach those ratios.
Thank you for your time, and I will appreciate any advice given.

close grip bench press, skull crushers, dips, pushdowns, etc.
LaxGuy16 First off, if you are new to BB then you should simply start working your entire body. (i know you probably are already). Back to your original question. The Tri's should be around 2/3'rd your arm (although genetics may change this for you). I for my tri's i like the following (in order)
Close Grip Bench, Dips, Skulls. (but that is just me)
Current Cycle: Cut
ATF Squat: 350lbs|315X2
DB Bench: 120|105X4
just changing the proximity fo the arms to the body will make the triceps the target muscle in a lot of pressing..experiment a bit
close-grip bench press, dips with legs straight, tricep rope pushdown, french press
Age: 20, Height: 5'7", Weight: 165, Deadlift: 405, 9.5" Squat: 230 x 10, Bench: 195 (3x5)

Kickbacks supersetted with Concentration Curls everyday for 6 weeks and you'll be hyoooge!
Heavy dips, close-grip benching, and extensions are all great.
dips and dips hard as ever but i'm terribly addicted to them!
