How Long Does It Take To Get Big Arms?
The question above is something that only a beginner would ask and if you are a novice and just starting weight training for the first time having never done any progressive lifting previously then the answer has to be that you will see results quickly.
So what is quickly and how long will it take to see an increase in the size of your arms? If you train your arms twice a week and regularly increase the amount of weight that you lift using strict form and a good technique you will see results within the first month.
To answer the question how long before your arms get big then the answer has to be how long is a piece of string? Getting "big" arms is something that is completely relative to the rest of your body. Bodybuilding is all about proportion, symmetry, muscle density and definition and there are many professional bodybuilders that look as if they have huge arms but it is all in proportion to the rest of their body.
The bottom line is that if you are 5 foot tall the chances of you getting 20 inch arms are extremely small as this would look ridiculous. That is why the distinction of what ‘big’ arms are is going to depend on your body on not on the tape measure.
Judges who judge a bodybuilding competition do not use a tape measure and never have, as this would defeat the purpose of what bodybuilding is all about. If your objective is to get big arms you will be able to achieve that with regular training of your arms but if you do not train the rest of your body it will also start to look ridiculous.
It is important to note that everybody has a natural asymmetry and there is a good chance that you will find that one arm is stronger than the other. This means that if you want both arms to be in proportion to the rest of your body you also need to make sure that you spend some time in getting your weak arm as strong as your strong arm.
