    My Arnold Encyclopedia says that for symmetry purposes, calves and biceps should be the same diameter. Currently, the calves are 14.5" and the biceps are 15". But because I'm tall, it really doesn't look like they are even close. My arms look much bigger than my calves. Anybody else have this issue?

    FWIW, I'm really working hard on my calves right now. I've added almost half an inch in the past three months. I'm using the priority principle, hitting them first and dedicating a full 30-40 minutes, just like I would any other body part. For much too long, I treated them as a 10 minute afterthought to legs.

    :hsd:

    with 15" arms, should your calves really be your first priority?

    within a half inch of each other is a rule of thumb

    r. arm is around 17"..and r. calf is around 16". Working on bringing up the calves though.
    Left arm and calf is 1/2" smaller, respectively.

    My arms aren't big, but they look good. :hs:

    I know, I know, you are all Arnolds in here, of course. 100lb dumbells for 20, etc, etc. Fuck all that noise. I'm trying my best to bulk.

    Obviously so big that you can't fit your hand into your pocket to fish out $5 for an av. Welcome to my ignore list, douchebag. :mamoru:

    do you catch the OT thing next to my name? yeah it means I could have an av, but I don't feel like it. So again, you can fuck yourself too
