Which muscle do u intend to gain faster? Tricep or Bicep. About how long would it take to gain one full inch on your arm.... just curious...

About the 1" thing....are u talking cold, pumped, flexed, relaxed? It is different depending on the individual, some people have great genetics in the bi/tri area...others don't...in my opinion there are to many things to consider to set it to a fixed lenght of time.

Triceps grow faster for me, my biceps sky-rocketted from 12-16.5 inches over summer though when i got my diet going. I gained 40 pounds, probably 30 of that was lean mass. I wish my biceps would grow better, I have to work them harder but i do like them. But when it comes to triceps i am a God in the gym!

My tris grow quicker also, but my bis grow pretty quickly also. I can put on an inch in a few months, but as quick as two months if I just concentrate on my arms all the time. As was said, different people gain differently. Depends on genetics, diet, how well you know your body, etc.

Tris are about 70 % of your arm so I Hit the tris harder most often then every once in a while i kill bis the same....Depends

They basically grow relative to each other. Like, biceps strength shouldn't exceed triceps (as said, triceps is a larger muscle group). Your body wants symetry - and getting a 150lbs Barbell Curl with a 100lbs Tricep Extension ain't gonna happen. With that said - it is very possible to have a lagging muscle group in terms of size... but you will get the best growth by training everything as a whole.
How fast you can put on an inch on your arm has waaaay too many variables to it...
BTW - the biggest problem I see with training Biceps are people doing entirely too much for them (I have seen people devote over an hour sluggishly doing one Biceps movement after another... ...pound them into submission then be done with them!) And Triceps need good heavy loads from Dips, Extensions and/or Close Grip Bench Press to get them to really develop.

I agree with that...also, most people actually overtrain their biceps , and then it slows down the growing process for it.
