What is the typical difference in size between a flexed arm, and an unflexed arm?

May sound a strange question, but what I've read suggests it's around an inch or so, yet mine increase by a full two inches, when flexed (and cold). I guess this is probably largely genetic and down to bone structure, but are there any biceps exercises that could perhaps increase the size of an unflexed arm, in particular? It's just rather annoying to have arms that look pretty good flexed, yet distinctly average, unflexed.

    mine are same 15 cold unflexed and 17 flexed so 2 inch dif. any exercise will make your arm bigger when relaxed . if mine grew to 18 flexed then they would be 16 unflexed

    theITman is on the money. While the bicep is relaxed the tricep is flexed and vice versa. The tricep is the t-shirt filler anyway.
