    5 Reasons Why Your Arms Might Not Be Growing



    Not seeing the progress you want in your biceps and triceps? The reason could be simpler than you might think. Here Iíll share five possible reasons that might explain why youíre not seeing the gains youíve been working towards in your arms.



    ONLY DOING COMPOUND MOVEMENTS


    A frequent assumption is that you can effectively train your biceps and triceps by solely performing complex movements in a standard push/pull split, but this is unlikely to be enough if your aim is muscle growth. That might not be the greatest technique because you're not getting enough direct arm volume to grow them to their full potential.


    Instead, I propose including exercises like standing dumbbell curls, spider curls, waiter curls, overhead extensions, and cobra pushups in your workouts that target those muscles. The added volume not only aids in the development of larger biceps and triceps, but it also looks better.


    NOT UTILIZING THE STRENGTH CURVE


    I recommend doing exercises that complement each other in terms of the strength curve to get the most out of your arm day workouts. In other words, the most challenging part of the movement. A strength curve describes the difficulty of an activity as it progresses through the range of motion; an ascending strength curve describes an exercise that becomes more difficult as it extends, whereas a descending strength curve describes an exercise that becomes easier as it approaches flexion.


    A barbell curl, for example, is most difficult in the midst of the action, while a spider curl puts the most tension on the biceps at the top: practicing both of these will fill in the strength "gap" and hit both the short and long heads of the biceps.


    YOUíRE OVERSIMPLIFYING PROGRESSIVE OVERLOAD


    Progressive overload, at its most basic level, entails gradually increasing the weight of an exercise in order to improve strength over time. But that's not all it means. Arm workouts don't allow you to simply add weight to them. When was the last time you boosted your standing dumbbell curl by more than 5 pounds?


    Technique, rather than load, is a more realistic strategy to enhance overload on arm day. For example, execute a set to failure, then lower the weight and repeat the exercise to failure. Mechanical dropsets, on the other hand, allow you to keep executing reps of the same exercise at the same weight after you've reached failure by simply transitioning to a more efficient posture or variation.


    YOUíRE NOT CONTRACTING YOUR MUSCLES EFFECTIVELY


    When completing a curl, it's not enough to simply move the weight through space; you must also contract it through space. Of course, your arm contracts to get you into that posture, but your biceps should also contract. Flex it as though you've just been told to develop a muscle, and the hardest muscle you've ever made is required... Do it again, but this time with a weight in your hand.


    LIFTING TOO HEAVYÖ OR TOO LIGHT


    You don't have to choose between the two; you have to do both. It's important to mix in heavier weights from time to time, even if it's only for 3, 4, 5, or 6 reps. This will help to stimulate growth. I also recommend using heavier weights for "cheat" versions, like as the cheat curl, which adds momentum to the movement and allows you to execute more eccentrically overloaded reps.
