    Do Triceps actually make up 2/3 of your arm?

    Can anybody prove this? I know the Triceps are a bigger group of muscles than the Biceps. But you also have the huge brachialis muscle under your biceps as a main elbow flexor.

    I think it's a myth. It stems from "tri" ceps and "bi" ceps. 3/5 is 60%, close to two-thirds.

    There are guys with nice biceps, weak triceps. I'm the opposite actually.

    Who cares, anyways? Focus on your muscle groups equally and train hard, eat well, take a multi, and they'll all grow.

    I'm assuming 'mass of arm' really means portion of total circumference, or perhaps generically the overall perception of size, I dunno I never heard the 2/3 rule myself.

    Draw your own conclusions (naturally it depends on where the transverse cut is taken).
    2 + 2 = 5 (for extremely large values of 2)

    Wooowww, dont listen to this guy. If proportioned correctly it does make up 2/3 of your arm, but there are people who have biceps that out-grow triceps and vice-versa.

    I think the reason people spread the 2/3rds rule is because so many newbs put way more effort into bi's than tri's. It is true that triceps are significantly more massive than biceps, but the exact ratio probably differs from person to person.

    Moral of the story: don't neglect your tri's because that's a newb mistake. Same goes for legs and back.

    Yet you post nothing but more broscience. Do you have any proof other than your word that triceps are 2/3 of your arm?

    No, then shut the **** up retard. I didn't support either viewpoint on this if you read what I wrote (I think...). But I'm not some ****ing tool who falls for whatever people tell him. The only guy who posted an actual piece of information here also came to an ambiguous conclusion.

    ****ing dumbass negging me for not subscribing to his retarded broscience.

    You can look at an arm (even someone who doesnt workout) and tell that the triceps muscle is somewhere in the region of 2/3 of your arm. You sound angry...possibly because you have been doing it wrong and your biceps are bigger than your triceps?? Anyway, I agree with kanis999, also.

    LOL so you can look at something and immediately know the percentage? In the region of...Also, it's well-known in the bb'ing community you look bigger with a low bf %. Does it mean you are bigger? No, it's an optical trick.

    Also, if you read what I wrote, you would see I put I'm the opposite, meaning my tris > my bis.

    EXACTLY what I was going to post.

    When somebody says they want bigger arms, the masochistic/bbing.com response is DO UR TRICEPZ BRAH THEY R TEH BIGER MUSKLE ANYWAYS LOL BICEPS R FUR PHAGGOTS.




    How about........train both with intensity? A novel idea if you ask me.





    But yes, they do make up about 2/3rd of your upper arm.

    Despite what this 16 year old is raging about..


    I can personally say my tricep takes up 60% if not more of my arm.


    How do I know? because I am less than 10% bodyfat and actually see my Bicep/ tricep striations.... My tricep muscles are very visible in the mirror and they easily are taking up 60-70% of my entire arms muscle.

    Only about the other 20-30% is my biceps.


    And no..I do not neglect my biceps.

    I can do Weighted Pull Up w/ 100 pound dumbbells.

    So don't try and give me any b/s Mr.16 year old.

    Thx

    Whether its ecactly 2/3 or not I cannot say but It is the majority of the mass on your arm so just hit them as hard as your biceps so you can have massive guns.

    As far as I'm concerned, my biceps are MUCH bigger than my triceps.

    Note: I meant biceps femoris .

    what do you think now? tri's clearly comprise more of the arm than the bi's.

    Of course, because if he negged me (in real life, I assume this would equate to some kind of insult) for something which he clearly didn't read and made an assumption about me, I wouldn't take it.

    Ya, another guy who has no clue what he's talking about and assumes because I'm red/16 I called him a retard for no reason whatsoever other than to put him down.

    AT first i read your tri bi thing and it is kinda rational.
    I don't know much muscle anatomy.

    But there is 3 main muscles in the "tris" which i forget. lateral, head and something else.

    Can't come to the conclusion for the bi's because i don't know and don't want to look it up.

    ****ing dumbass negging me for not subscribing to his retarded broscience.

    This "broscience" you speak of is called anatomy. And it was pretty much solved by the Greeks.

    Sounds like a silly generalization. Mslman gives a good example of where it looks to be half the arm. Not only does it matter based on where you cut, but also your genetic predisposition as well as how much you train.

    A better reason (other than balanced training) for building ridiculously huge triceps would be that it's a way to add circumference without impeding range of movement, since while bigger elbow flexors can actually impede maximal elbow flexion (when tensed, probably not so much if you can relax them) I've never seen a tricep get so big you can't straighten the elbow.

    Who cares, anyways? Focus on your muscle groups equally and train hard, eat well, take a multi, and they'll all grow.
    Woah. You are one stupid motherfuucker.

    They are called triceps because it has three heads. "Tri" as in 3. The long head, the medial head, and the lateral head. And they are called biceps because they have two heads. "Bi" as in 2. Long head and short head
