    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.

    I measured them just shy of 36cm today (14.1 inches), but that was just after a workout with pump, so doesn't really count. But they're definitely bigger than at first.

    Here's a picture from today, it's fairly easy to see the difference from the last one I think:

    Hmmm. I need to do something for "da gunz" I think. That being said I've only been doing SS six weeks, so maybe it's best not to add anything to the program yet?

    Granted I have high body fat, but I already have kind of a "T-Rex" build... Very big thighs (26") and small arms (13"). Kind of wondering if all these squat-centric workouts will only tend to exaggerate it. Not saying I'll stop (having too much fun so far) but just wondering...

    Don't worry about it for now. Your legs may get skinnier before they get bigger. But squatting will cause systemic growth. Your triceps are getting plenty of work from press and bench. Barbell curls can be added later. Much later.
