Different Muscle Types and Responses

by youssef

Different Muscle Types & Responses. Building bigger arms. Working through plateaus...

I have different responses in my muscles.
For example I have very slow response in increasing weight or performing better in bicep or tricep exercises, almost I increase only 2.5 kg weight in free weight training ( e.g dumbbells) every 1.5 month or something.

While in my chest (bench) I increase weight and perform better every next workout.

That gives me a problem in having a clear big chest and small arms.

-So does this concern my body type (ecto,endo,meso)?
Or does it concern my genes?
Or does it concern how I built my body the first time?

Where I started training push ups all the time when I was 11 years old till now (20), while I starting training biceps and triceps workouts by dumbbells when I was 15 years old and of course I cut out training dumbbells many times, while I always perform pushups.

-Anyway can I concentrate more on my biceps and triceps in training to have the good body balance and form?
