    Misc bodybuilders: is it possible to get 18in arms naturally?

    Can you get 18 inch arms at competition weight without using steroids, growth hormone, synthol, whathaveyou?
    Free advice. You get what you pay for.

    Life is about balance between family, work, friends, lifting, hobbies, etc.

    Each one should be independent of one another, yet somehow productively connected.

    If one starts to overshadow the others, they all suffer.

    18 inches is the average size for a non-competitive lifter.

    Depends whether you want 6% bf or 15%bf.
    For some people they will never be able to achieve ripped 18 inchers.

    for a majority of natural non-delusional non-e-stat lifters i will say no... Its not a linear type of growth and a genuine lean 18"" arm is quite rare i think.. And i mean LEAN, so you can plainly see tricep/bicep and veins etc.. Not a fatcep







    ^^^^^^^^^ this is why you shouldnt listen to anyones measurements on the internet. People are just MADD!!!!!

    I prefer powerlifting over bodybuilding, and I'm still not going to be satisfied until I have large arms.

    Is it possible? Certainly. Is it easy? Hell no! A natural bodybuilder who used to train me had 19"s and he was about 5'10", but he was freakishly committed and a former state champion.

    But you don't need 18" arms for your arms to look big. At 15" you have arms big enough to attract attention, and by 16" you have arms that will make people say "wow". so it's all relative.

    I would say yes but it won't be easy. I'd say 1/2"/year if you're lucky.

    That's what I think too... it's very hard to grow 18 inch arms naturally. It takes years and years of hard work and good genetics.

    A general rule of thumb is that for every 10lbs. of actual muscle that you add to your frame, 1'' will be added to your arm measurement. So with that being said, adding 10lbs. of muscle naturally is pretty tough in its own right, and to do that 2,3 or even 4 times is going to take some serious dedication but its possible

    But yes it's entirely possible naturally.
    My arms are currently getting close to 17 and a half (flexed, cold) and I'm still quite lean, I've never taken anything in fact I've only recently been taking a bit of whey protein to help my bulk on its way.
    I recon 18's aren't too far off for me, so it's possible.

    Not most people.

    This man managed 18.5 inch arms at competition weight with mindblowing genetics and awesome drugs.



    18 inches reasonably lean is a different story, particularly if you're tall and/or have a large bone structure.

    You are in good shape but 17.5 inch arms at normal bodyfat and water level is simply another world from 18 inch arms in contest condition.

    Thumbs up

    if you start training from a early age that ur hormones are high, yes, for an old fart that starts bb at 30 and stays natural no, and also depends on genetics, some guys have good arms genetics while others just suck, now to answer your question, is it possible, well yes it is

    It isn't possible for most people, whatever age they start at. Genes come with limitations, and 18 inch arms contest condition is fairly huge for your average juicehead, let alone attainable by your average natural joe.

    this^


    if you got cut ass liek 15-16" and say your 5'10 you will look pretty jacked


    my goal is to maintain a 170 @ 10% im aways away because im still suffering from tendonitis in my arm and cant lift but i used to have 15.5" arms fairly defined with a terrible diet

    oh in contest condition its very hard definitelly, but some people have amazing genetics, and have a gene defect that causes them to block myostatin, and they grow very fast, flex wheeler supposedly had it, he didnt have to go on heavy long cycles like others and he still grew by taking test, and other not so harsh roids..............just sayin

    strong delusions in this thread, and strong Clive. That picture of the kid with the 15"ers pretty much sums up the internet.

    It might be possible if you have top tier genetics and are quite tall. But the average person of course not.

    Most AAS users never get arms that big.
