    Can't gain definition between my upper arm and shoulder?

    Hi, so I've been working out everyday for awhile now and I am for the most part, very pleased with the results. But, what I don't like us that when I'm not workin out and my arms are at my side, I don't look really like I have much muscle, like my upper arms and my shoulders do not have toning or something to make it look like I have any muscle. Can somebody please tell me what to do to fix this? Thank you!

    arms and shoulder are smaller than others so you should do it 2x a week or so.

    you are at 5"10'. we are the same height. I read somewhere that taller people have a harder time sculpting their muscles compared to shorter people because its longer.

    Well I would say if your skinny obviously your not going to have much muscle and because of that you will in other words look flat. But at the same time if your lets not say fat but a person bf is higher you also will not have that definition or "cut or tone" between the arm and shoulders. SO then you would need to lower your bf %. But overall my take on this is you need to be in the middle of these 2, you need to have muscle development and have a low enough bf % for to get that "cut or tone" from the arm to shoulder. That being said their's thousands of workout's and routine I don't need to know what doing for working out..obviously if your hitting it hard and weights/reps are going up it's working the main thing I think should be addressed here is how your eating habits look. Theirs really a lot of factors that come in play here which need to be addressed. Theirs the so called "skinny/fat" their skinny but they don't have veins poping out or when they flex their bicep peak really does't show..that right their is the most understood it's-self while people may call it "skinny/fat". Really all it is, is a normal person genetics who hasn't spent MONTH'S of working out in the gym to DEVELOP their muscles and I'm thinking that's probably what your case might be , just expect it to take time it's all about time. With that being said, just some things to think about and hopefully helps with your question. Good job on seeing results tho that means your doing something right and it's working so just keep at it, time is in control with this sport. You can eat whatever workout however take as many drugs as you want but only time will decide the outcome and how long.

    1. Don't work out arms/shoulders more than once a week.
    2. lower body fat. If your 16, 5 10, and weigh 165 you have room to cut. Butttt, with that said- if you have no muscular mass then you won't show anything. Simple, flex in the mirror- if you can see your abs but you still have a watery and soft look, drop bf%. If your not watery at all and don't have abs, then you need to put on muscle in order to see it.

    1. Your body fat % isn't low enough
    2. Your arms/shoulders are simply not developed enough

    What does your routine look like?

    Either you have to cut down bodyfat, or you simply don't have the muscle mass. Don't know what you look like, however unless you're fat I'd bulk. Benching also works your delts so you probs shouldn't go twice a week. Maybe even give them their own day or do them first. For me I like seated overhand dumbbell press to military press for size and contraction (but not for strength).

    my workout goes a little like this
    3-4working sets seated dumbbell press
    2-3working sets standing barbell rows (sometimes i do this on back day)
    2-3working sets front raises
    2-3working sets side raises

    this keeping in mind I only have access to barbells and dumbbells

    Lateral raises and front raises with dumbbells will bring out the distinction between your delts and your arms. Also if you're fat then cut. Can't tell you much more without pics but at 165lbs a cut probably isn't the best idea.
