    tall guys: do you find it hard gain muscle on your arms?

    I am an ectomorph (just wanted to put that out there). I have managed to bulk up quite a lot but most of this weight has given me a solid chest, waist and thighs, but i havnt been able to put on much on my arms. This may be because i am following an incorrect weight training program, but it has worked for every other body part so i am inclined to think it has something to do with my height. Has anyone else found this (assuming you are also tall)?

    No.


    Although for most taller peps it's harder to gain mass on the arms but just stick with it the mass will come and once it does it'll look that much better. And also don't concentrate as much on arms do more compounds pull up,s dips, deads, rows, etc.

    its harder for tall guys to fill out and notice gains since we have long limbs

    but my arms are gaining muscle in proportion to the rest of my body so no its not hard (for me atleast)
