I'm 20 years old, 5'6ish 154 pounds (give or take)
I've been going to the gym pretty regularly ( 3-4 days a week) for the last 3 years (been more serious the last 2 years) and I'm trying to get my arms bigger- primarily my triceps.
Here's some pictures of what I got atm, from multiple angles so you know where I'm coming from:
first one is arm to the side flexed
second one is arm straight out flexed
third is arm pressed to the side
fourth is arm straight out unflexed
and for the fifth is my arm unflexed (I decided to put pants on for the last picture, kinda felt like a douche just chillin in my boxers taking pictures of my arms lol)
So as you can see, my arms (imo) look somewhat decent when flexed or held to my side, but unflexed they look very unimpressive (by my own standards).
I usually try to do bis and tris together and my current routine is the following:
-4 sets weighted dips (10-12 reps), starting with a 25 pound weight, then going to 45, 45 again and then back down to 25
- 4 sets weighted chin ups (6-10 reps), starting at 25, then going to 45, 45, 45 (or down to 25 if I'm feeling tired)
-4 sets of close grip bench press (6-8 reps)
-4 sets cable curl (6-8 reps)
-3-4 sets of rope pull downs (8-10 reps)
2 sets of hammer curls (12-15 reps no rest)
So basically my question is this: how I can get my triceps (and arms in general) bigger when unflexed? (without steroids)
if anybody has any advice, I'd greatly appreciate it
PS. I drink like 8 cups of coffee a day, dunno if that has anything to do with it, but I thought it might be worth noting lol
