I just measured them and theyre a measly 13.5 inches around. This is before my cut!
During my cut is there any way I can gain muscle in my arms as well as all ove rmy body?
Why are you cutting if you've got 13.5" arms?
Eat clean and lift, and things will sort themselves out.
I havent started cutting yet.
I started off at 145 pounds and now im about 165. Ive gained a bit of fat as well. When I get to 175 im thinking of cutting.
I shoulkd have said when i cut rather than during my cut lol
Instead of cutting, you could eat at maintenance and try to get some body recomposition. I guess it would mostly depend on how nen you are.

well... I'm cutting and I did manage to get massive shoulder muscles during my cut... so It is possible...
nen = new
to figure maintenance, reduce current 'bulking' calorie intake by 10-20%...eat liek that for 2 weeks, then see if you gained, lost, or maintained your weight.
there are formulas, but nothing's more accurate than logging your diet and watching for changes in weight.
i dont think you should cut either, find out what your maintainence cals are on www.fitday.com and take it from there. Eat slightly above that number, and get started on WBB1... and do not do any extra training on your arms, no extra sets, no extra reps!
Overtraining your arms will keep them small! And if you think your arms are small.... mine were 12.5 inches flexed 2 years ago when i topped the scale at 135lbs

Why WBB 1?
I took a look at it and realized that there werent very many sets, not to mention low reps.
1)What will I look like if I were to do this routine?
2)Can I add a few isolation workouts if I feel I could benefit from them?
3)Should I cut down now to say... 155 and than restart the bulk?
I really dont want to get fat lol.
This is upsetting...
At least I got something off this short bulk.
Tommorow I may jus thave a crack at this.
As well, whats the quickest way to determine my maintainance level? Do i really have to through two weeks of testing to find out?

How tall are you?
You could figure out maintenance in a week, but the longer you go...the more accurate of an idea you will have.

WBB1 feels like a lot of sets if your intensity is high enough.
I would say keep bulking for a while longer. I started out at 153, bulked up to about 183, then cut down to about 170 in my first year of seriously lifting. At 170 I felt and looked small and didn't have enough muscle yet to look impressive anyway. In hind sight, I would have kept bulking to 200 or so.
Could I switch the french press with skull crushers?
And are bar bell rows done standing upright or leaning forward?
BTW im 18, 5'11
I bulked from 145-165. I feel fat though. I dont have a petruding belly at all though.

French press is the same as skull crushers, I think.
Bar bell rows are bent over
That's correct.French press is the same as skull crushers, I think.
