    Slow arm growth, Big chest growth.

    My chest is really growing, but my arms seem to not to be growing so quickly.
    I started working out 11-21-04.. so these stats start 2 months after I started.

    Here is a bit of an example on the weight I am lifting, converted from KG. This is per dumbell.

    1-23-05 ................. 4-3-05
    Dumbell tricepts, 43 LBS ................. 48 LBS
    Hammer curls, 43 LBS ................. 51 LBS
    Benchpress 53 LBS ................ 70 LBS


    I usually work directly my arms only once a week. Will working the arms twice a week make any difference? I'm totally against overworking, and think many people do.
    What I don't understand is that a lot of people here say their chest grows slowly and their arms fast.. I find it chest grows quickly and arms slowly.

    another thing is when I work my chest.. I feel sore every time for a couple days. When I work my arms.. I don't feel so sore.. and if I do get a little soreness its only a day. Could I not be working my arms hard enough?

    Another thing is dumbell pressing, I got huge gains on my shoulders. For example.
    1-22-05 ................ 4-3-05
    Dumbell pressing 43 LBS ............. 56 Lbs

    so my shoulders seem to also grow much more quickly than my bicep and tricep.

    IS this normal?
