Tip #94: Set Realistic Arm Building Goals To Improve Motivation

Written by Steve

One of the best ways to maintain your training motivation is by setting realistic, but challenging goals. When it comes to arm building, it seems everyone claims 19-20″ arms. Despite this chest pumping, these numbers are far from reality.

Here is a simple method for determining reasonable arm building goals for the natural trainee: take your wrist measurement and add 10″ to 10.5″. The resulting number should yield a 16.5″ to 18″ arm size or more, depending on your current bodyfat levels.

You can also refer to the following chart to determine your arm size potential after taking a wrist measurement.

  • 6.25″ Wrist – 16.25″ arm size goal
  • 6.5″ Wrist – 16.5″ arm size goal
  • 6.75″ Wrist – 16.75″ arm size goal
  • 7.0″ Wrist – 17.0″ arm size goal
  • 7.25″ Wrist – 17.25″ arm size goal
  • 7.5″ Wrist – 17.50″ arm size goal
