Figured I'd share a couple of pics so ya'll have more to go on than my goofy online persona. For the basics: I am 6'3'', so quite tall and very lanky. I am a lifetime natural but have no interest in competing. I've been in/out of the gym for 12 years or so, and am just coming back from nearly 4 years out of the gym and a myriad of minor health problems. So for me, lifting is more of a stress reliever / hobby / something relatively constructive to obsess over. I won't go out of my way to post training logs but I work out 4-5 days a week, typical 3-day split. I was a textbook "skinnyfat" when I started, with wide hips for my height.

I'm a hair or two above 200-205 right now. Arms are a serious weak point but delts came back quickly even without me hitting them very hard, so there's an obvious trade-off. Achim Albrecht syndrome  Tongue

Thanks for the response. I'll post any further pics and updates in this thread, similar to how you do it

My tris aren't terrible but biceps are sort of lost in "no mans land", not short enough to get a good peak, and not long enough to really fill out the arm. Also they are very narrow, if you are looking at my arm from the front its really obvious. I do lots of concentration curls with elbow leveraged against my leg. I don't go all of the way down though. I do this with 40s, 45s...Make sure I can do at least 10 reps. Always go to failure for those. I do lots of hammer curls too

I always get really bad forearm cramping after I work biceps. Usually once my pump wears off later in the day, and it persists all the rest of the day.

I drink plenty of water and don't have an electrolyte issue, but this only happens with my forearms.

I started doing cable flyes instead of dumbbells. I use 90% dumbbells for chest and that is probably why I don't have much size, I'm always working out alone and don't have a spotter.

Will try dips more.

agree 100% i just never feel my chest like i do on Dips and Flys with Benches. Only workout i will do for chest is Decline and Incline press if Benching. Flat Bench press i have never liked and i have like you guys mainly worked with Dbs on it.

Weighed myself first time since last August. I've put on 25 lbs in the last year just getting back into things. Obviously not all muscle but its encouraging nonetheless.

I would say that tris are actually a strong point for me,, they always have good separation even if I'm not in 'great' shape. arms still need a lot of work they are lagging behind my shoulders it looks weird from the front
