    Okay, just because of this thread I did my very first ever bicep isolation curls. I feel both silly and belonging at the same time.

      When pictures of arms start appearing, we will be good.

            Still doing this! Been doing bench presses, isolation curls and my normal curls.

              I'm following the 5/3/1 three month challenge so basically my upper body days are like this:

              5/3/1 Military press
              5x10 benchpress
              5x10 chinups

              or

              5/3/1 bench press
              5x10 military press
              5x10 dumbbell rows

              And both days end with barbell curls, triceps pushdowns and face pulls.

              I've never done isolation work before, so it should have an effect, I hope. Am also eating more carbs on training days and trying to be in a caloric surplus.

                I've been doing bench press, overhead press, dips, and chinups once each week and throwing in curls and lying triceps extensions when I have time. I'm up about .25", last time I checked.

                  Here is a tip for ya, most bicep exercises suck because you lose tension towards the top of the movement, if you attach a resistance band to the bar and trap it with your feet it helps maintain tension at the top. This was me doing them a while back:

                            My arms appear visually bigger to me, but I couldn't find my flexible ruler. When I do I'll let you know :-)

                              Wish I'd taken these measurements a year or more ago. Pretty sure my quick growth phase is well past. Might consider monitoring anyhow though. I like these contest threads! Keep em up.

                                I see what you did there .

                                Last time I checked, I'm up about .5". That's mostly from doing weighted dips.
