    Calves Bigger Than Biceps?

    Currently have 19 inch calves but my biceps are only at 17. Anyone else have this problem?

    Dude, just be great full you have amazing calves, lol. What is you triceps routine look like? Since the tri's are 2/3 of your arm I would suspect that is the culprit.

    Lol, don't be fooled. I am being just a tad cocky haha. I am concerned though about my arms being smaller than my calves. I do tris once a week with pulldowns and kick backs. Any good exercise tips to really make them pop?

    You have to do close grip presses, dumbell single overhead extensions, and head cavers if you want some meat on your tri's. I do some cable extensions for a finisher but never as a builder.

    When you do your close grip press do you do them reverse grip?

    I have done them on the smith machine reverse grip but not free weight, my wrists don't seem to bend enough to do them properly. This week I am going to do both, I might even try doing free weight ones past 275, that has been my max for a while. I do like the reverse grip, used to do it a lot back in the day, had gotten pretty strong with them too.
