    my arms are a good size to where i like it. my chest and shoulder are strong but lack some size. i always go heavy follow up with a superset usually. what do i need to do now to get to that next step and get my chest and shoulder development into high gear? do i need to change up my routine and maybe go light for a few weeks?

    I'm in the opposite boat, my shoulders have always grew faster than my arms, kinda frustrating

    its normal for arms to grow faster when you're starting out

    This doesn't make sense to me, so your forearms and calves should grow alot quicker than your quads and gluts?

    consider yourself lucky...I think it looks better to have large arms, unlike me, my arms are small compared to everything else.

    arms grow faster than shoulders for me...

    my shoulders won't budge. upped set's recently and i think its helping.

    either way, unless it is an extreme case, i dont know if i would ever work my arms less even though they grow faster. i'd take advantage of the muscle gain and have the biggest arms ever rather than just have some proportion.
