I have been working out for awhile now and I'm definitely getting stronger but my arms don't seem to be getting any bigger. My legs and my back seem to be showing the workouts more. Is there something I should do different?? I'm not looking to get huge but I would like to get a little bigger. I do lower reps with heavier weight. Should I take a supplement ??Any suggestions.
Right now I take a multi-vitamin w/ a little extra Vitamin C. I also take in between 150 to 190 grams of protein a day.
Mondays=Arms,chest,upper back,shoulders--end with 20min of cardio
Tuesday=Complete Core workout--end with 20min of cardio
Thursday=Play in Softball League, No gym/ If rained out Ill do Mondays workout again
Friday=Legs,Lower body--end with 10min cardio
Any insight would be great! Thanks!!

I would agree that #1 you should look into eating more. You do a decent amount of cardio and also play sports, which can inhibit size gains. You could try backing off on your cardio sessions for a week or two and see if that helps.
It's all a balancing game, so you're going to have to experiment.☠ By reading this post, you have agreed to my negative reputation terms of service.

Might be a good idea to keep track of your muscle measurements. Progress may be slow and steady, but there will surely be a monthly difference.
