    Adding a couple inches...

    With a good workout regimen and a solid diet, could I add 2" to my arms in 4 months?

    My current size is 14"...pathetic, and football's coming up, I want to be stronger and look a bit more the part.

    Starting monday my workout plan will look like this:

    Monday: Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
    Tuesday: Rest Day
    Wednesday: Back, Biceps, Forearms
    Thursday: Rest Day
    Friday: Quads, Hamstrings, Calves
    Saturday: Rest day
    Sunday: Rest day

    My tricep workout compromises of skullcrushers, lying tricep extensions and close grip benching.
    My bicep workout compromises of benching, alternating DB curls, standing barbell curls and preacher curls.

    I'm hoping to for about 20lbs of lbm and 2" to my arms, is this possible; NOTE, using my whole workout, I only posted my specific arm workouts.
    Also I feel like my tricep workout is lacking a bit, what are some other good workouts for them?

    i think 2" in 4 months is kinda pushin it, unless you are a beginner. but who knows i could be wrong. it just seems a lil too much in too little time to me.

    Plastic surgery would do it.

    Adding 2" to your arms will take a LOT longer than 4 months.

    i would shoot for an about 1/2 inch because i dont think you would be able to get much more than that in 4 months without any gear and assuming by ur display name thats not an option

    your tricep workout is probly good.. thats pretty much the same thing i do and they are responding good. maybe its just genetics, most people have atleast 1 muscle that wont grow as fast as the other ones. my lats are horrible even tho i crush em in the gym

    Agreed. A WHOLE lot longer. If you want it to be muscle that is.

    If you gained 50lbs you might gain 2 inches on your arms, maybe, I dunno.. but 50lbs is gonna take alot longer than 4 months.

    An inch on your arms would equate to about 10lbs of solid muscle, so your math is pretty good. In that case you have to add 5lbs of muscle every month for 4 months. Impossible, no, but very extremely hard to do if you're not in that lucky 1% of the population that grow like weeds. I suggest lifting really heavy, eating a lot and sleeping a good 9 - 10 hours a day. Also incorporate a lot of pulls in your workout, close and wide grip rows and pullups.

    Why not jsut get stronger and not look the part. This way people will underestimate you on the field, and you'll kick ass.

    Try the Max-OT program (http://www.ast-ss.com) to increase strength. [you need to sign up w/ your e-mail, but I never got any spam becasue of it]

    where are the dips?

    What are your workouts for other bodyparts?

    What is your rep/set range for all exercises?

    Why are you dedicating workouts for forearms? They get targeted enough in other exercises.
