    Did anyone suprise themsleves with how big there guns got naturally?

    Hi, I wondered if people here took there guns naturally further than they belived is possible for there body type.

    I remeber reading an article by Robert Kennedy(Muscle mag international) and he stated he only ever got 17 inch guns becuase he was not genetically gifted and I dont think he was short.

    I am currently at 16 inches pumped at 5'6 and dream of 17's naturally which is a well proportioned look for a 5'6 guy. I am not sure if they can grow that big as a natural bodybuilder of ecto-meso build.

    What experiences have people had here who have gone beyond what they expected for their genetic body type.?

    my arms are currently 14-15 inches pumped so to me your arms are big!! lol.
    and im 5ft 6 also. I dont think there is a limit to how big they can grow, but genetics do play a big part. My dads are roughly the same size as mine, probly a little bigger, I will outgrow his arms soon enough when i reach my target of 16-17 inch arms.

    I've got 15"s. My tricep strength is more important than my biceps, so I all of my curls are for gurls.

    Yes, I surprised myself.

    I'm 5'5" and my arms are a little over 17" cold flexed, completely natural. My goal is actually 17.5-18" if possible.

    Big is a relative word, my arms are about 17" and I think they look small, but my friends think they're "huge". It all depends on you view things. I wouldn't mind having 18" arms, but it's not really important to me either way.

    i thought mine were pretty big but i measured them one time and 15'' hahaha

    i guess curling once every 2 months doesnt help but i really dont care! big biceps are for girly men anyways.

    Regardless, that doesn't make them any less important. But triceps make up two-thirds of the arm bulk.

    I would nt call Arnold a girly man, he is one of the best Athletes the world has ever seen period.

    I would hjave his becepts and be happy to be called girly anytime

    he did have pretty good tricepts too and yes tricepts do make up arm size whilst bicepts help add to the illusion of size.
