    How big are your pumps?

    Does anyone in here get really massive pumps after a couple of sets?
    My arms are normally 14.5 inches but when i get half way through my arm routine they are 15.5 going on 16? I think this is good but is it really a good thing or bad?

    I think that's normal. When you don't get that feeling of massiveness or pump, you should begin to ask yourself "what the hell is wrong with me?" But dont' you want to always feel and look the way you are after a workout?

    My pumps are massive, but I've never measured them. I'd kill to keep them all of the time.

    Crap. I hate inside jokes told by Getfit that seem to have a sexual reference.

    It's funny. They all sound like it but she NEVER means it that way.
    I gain 1.5-2 inches in arms.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    My forearms get pumped to like 14/15 and my veins swell to the size of coin rolls. All my geek friends go "wtfizzle".

    The best pump I get for my arms is when I finish my workout with a super set of preacher curl + tricep pushdown. I do a triple drop set on the preacher curl then move directly onto the tricep pushdown to complete another triple drop set. I gain between a 1" and 1.5" in size.

    Mine go from 15" to almost 26". My forearms go from 12" to 19". My veins become like garden hoses. I should enter a bodybuilding contest immediately post workout.

    Sometimes my pumps are so big that people mistake me for an inflatable device.

    I usually also do preacher curl and tricep pushdown to finish off an arm workout and my pumps are also very insane compared to my normal look.
