    did you know that the tricep covers 2/3 of the arm? if you want big arms do your triceps :)

    indeed, big arms = big tri's.

    a good start would be supersetting barbell curls and skullcrushers. you wont do your max weights but its a good set for adding a bit of size.
    then start to incorporate separate bi and tri sessions into your routine.

    infact, post up your routine, as you might be doing the 2nd part of what i said already!

    my arms dont seem to be growing either, im starting a new routine tommorow, training each body part seperatly, for my arms im thinking of this.

    Day 4: Arms
    Bicep curl 4x6
    Concentration curls 4x6
    Dumbbell kickback 4x6
    cable pushdowns 4x6

    Does that look ok?
    Thanks

    Couldn't agree more! Big basic exercises are the way to grow. The only isolation exercise I use is calf raise and I've put over an inch on my arms using compound exercises.

    If you really want to increase mass, maybe do one or two bicep isolation exercises along with your big basic exercises.

    I think you should concentrate on getting big generally.

    Seems silly, but if you go in and just try and get biceps big, you'll not get anywhere, and if you did you'd look like a twat.

    Best thing is to do a routine that hits your whole body with heavy compound moves and you'll find that your arms will grow in no time.

    My biceps are coming on more than ever, and my bicep routine consists of:

    3x6 preacher curls

    That's it, why? because they get hit when I do rows and lots of other stuff

    Good advice above, stick to basics. From my experience the arms actually grow better with back compound exercises rather then only direct isolated movements. I only do 2 isolated movements; DB curls and hammer curls 3 x 6

    Take a look at this http://www.insomnia.pl/1/images2003/20030818122423.jpg. Don't get me wrong, it's impressive, but very out of proportion.

    I found dropsetting db's with bicep curls really gave them a kick start into growing. listen to the other guys as well as their advice on triceps is priceless
