    Squats and milk.

    Chickens good to.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    There's a good chance you might just need to eat more..... a very good chance.

    ^ I agree. The worst thing is to compare yourself to somebody else. My friends chest has gotten a lot bigger than mine since we both started working out but my legs seem to have come through more. Never compare yourself to others. However, if you have stopped gaining i agree with everyone...EAT EAT EAT EAT EAT!

    Well you've gained over 30lbs. That's nothing to sneeze at. You need to eat more if you want to gain faster than that.

    Your food intake isn't massive. Massive is a sumo wrestler's, an olympic athlete, Kobayashi, etc. Count your calories and see if it even hits 5000 mark. Your workouts seem too much and too long. 30-45 minutes is what I would recommend.

    Don't worry about it... I've gained nearly 50lbs in the last year and my arms have only grown about 1.5 inch (if that)

    I've always had small arms in comparision to the rest of my body so I just accept it.

    Depends on how heavy he is lifting and how much time he is taking in between sets. My workouts are frequently over 1.5 hrs long, and I'm not having any troubles. This is purely personal preference.

    However, everyone is correct in that u need to eat more if u want to gain more.

    Have you considered changing your program? You know, new exercises, new rep set up, new weight. I was stuck for about 5 weeks until I changed my program. After that I got huge gains. Huge gains = 100+ added to my combination in 4 weeks.

    Two days for a tiny muscles like the biceps?
    Shoulders get hit twice; another small muscle.
    However, the two largest muscle groups are hit only once (back and legs).

    Not exactly a recipe for success.
