Hey guys. I just wanted to see if anyone had some good advice/ workouts for adding some serious size to your arms. My arms are skenny when I don't flex but when I do they are huge. I want them to be big when I'm not flexing

Looking at your photo and your question you need to work on your triceps more to build size & definition in your arms. Your triceps make up two thirds of your arms and when improved will make you look 'bigger' overall. Without going into too much detail with tricep/bicep exercise suggestions, I'd recommend lifting as heavy as you can for 6-8 reps with 90 second - 2mins rests in between. 3 to 4 sets. You can check out my created workouts where there are arm specific workouts if you wanna try some

I was just scrolling through my workouts and one that I created and did last year which added an inch or two to my arms after 6 weeks is called "MAXED OUT - ARMS" (it's in my created workouts) - if you go to the gym it's a combination of different weight/rep ranges to really shock the arms into growth & really worked well for me
** important** for it to work you have to lift HEAVY ASS weight where it tells you to. I don't mean slightly heavy where you're struggling a little by the 6th rep, I mean tendon-snapping, I'm gonna cry weight 

If you can barely lift your arms at the end of the workout and just wanna curl up in a ball on the floor you know you did it right!

Yeah I saw that one and I like it. The killer for me is I always lift as heavy as I possibly can then fatigue with light weights and still don't see any significant improvements

What rep rang when lifting heavy?

I try to put enough weight where I have to fight for 6 reps

Don't fatigue out. Lift your heavy 6 then take the rests (the rests are so boring!! Or you can do some ab work while resting). You might be fatiguing out too soon in your workout and impacting on how much you can lift in the preceding exercises. When doing a fatigue week I found that it worked best for me to have a fatigue set at the very end of the overall workout.

I've created some specific drop-set fatigue exercises for the arms called "let's finish this - biceps" and "let's finish this - triceps" which will burn your arms up
