Most bodybuilders are quite confused when they first start out. It’s the industry to blame. It feeds off ignorance. One of the frequently asked questions is: Can I Get 20 Inch Arms Naturally? The answer is: “No, unless you are fat as hell.”
You can’t get 20 inch arms naturally unless you are also comfortable with gaining a lot of fat. In the past and during the Golden Era of bodybuilding (the 1970s) legit 20 inch arms were rare. There is also evidence that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s arms were “only” 19 7/8 inches, instead of the official 22 inches. They were measured by Arthur Jones who popularized HIT (High Intensity Training) and the use of the machines Nautilus. When you keep that in mind it becomes painfully obvious that obtaining a set of 20 inch arms without anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs (PED) is a pipe dream.
Virtually every modern IFBB bodybuilder uses anabolic steroids, GH (growth hormone), insulin, synthol…etc. 20 inch arms arms are still considered quite respectable in this day and age.
If natural guys can have lean 20 inch arms, why are not professional IFBB bodybuilders spotting 25 inch arms?
Truth be told, most natural bodybuilders will have really hard time getting their arms over 15-16 inches in lean condition. To some of you this may come as a shock.
That’s because the fitness industry has set super unrealistic expectations. It’s hard to wake up from the trance but sooner or later it will happen. You can only postpone the lesson. You can’t delay it.
However, instead of being disappointed be grateful for what you have. There’s always somebody in the world who would kill to be in your position – the same one you are complaining about. Unfortunately, we truly learn to respect what we have after it’s gone.
Having lean 15 inch arms is not bad at all. In fact, if you have that you are doing better than 90% of the population. Once again – be grateful for what you were blessed with. Try to elevate your spirit and don’t kill yourself and others over trivial things.
“People are strange: They are constantly angered by trivial things, but on a major matter like totally wasting their lives, they hardly seem to notice.”
― Charles Bukowski
