    Arms outgrowing rest of body

    ...I am 29 - 195lbs and 10%BF, my arms are at 18"-and are getting to the point to where they are getting out of proportion with the rest of my body. (My Calfs are at 15") My workout Consist of the same thing for everybodypart. 12 sets, 3 different exercises, 6-10 reps each set. Also, I work each body part every fifth day. Everthing is growing the same, but my arms have grown, a lil quicker I guess. What would be a good workout to still train them but to actually keep them growing at a slower pace. I never thought I would ever say that...any suggestions.

    I have the same problem. Although I don't think my arms are ever big enough, I can't get my calves to grow for shit. I don't even do bulking cycles anymore because with the bloat my upper body is huge and my legs are still small. I'd rather be in proportion than have huge arms and torso.

    What if I went to a high rep, moderate weight regimen for my arms?

    IMO opinion your triceps are getting work when you bench and your biceps when you do back......Maybe only work Bi's/Tri's twice a month....if they are growing that quickly scale back a little....

    I have the same problem myself. When I used to use a bodybuilding program, I would break my workouts up to either lower body day or upper body day. I got this advice from strength coach Ian King and it really helped balance out my body. A lot of bodybuilders use a upper to lower body ratio of 3:1. This will lead to an imbalance, unless your have superior leg genetics.

    calf size in genetic- pray hard and do raises for a few years an expect to gain an inch at most (w/o roids or implants)- I say cover your legs and worry mostly about upper body unless you feel that you need to be a pro

    I dont think thats good advice at all. "Just give up"..no

    anyways bro, congrats on the arm growth, I'm guessing your favorite muscles to work out are bi's and tri's? ...My advice would be to try and hit every other muscle group as if they were your arms, like you absolutely love hitting those muscle groups just like you do with arms.

    don't give up on your calves, just know your weaknesses, that's all...
