I have been doing arm exercises for 2 years and have increased the weight gradually. I do at least 6 sets of 12 of about 3 to 4 different exercises twice a week. I can lift about 15 kg but my arms don`t seem to have increased in muscle. Why is this?

Arm Development

It is easy to overwork your arms. These are relatively small muscles, and also get worked with exercises like pulldowns or bench presses. Sometimes better results can be achieved by doing more chest and back exercises that use arms and fewer specific arm exercises. Another approach is to use heavier weight and fewer reps. Muscle development is partly genetic, so it's possible to get very strong but not show a lot of muscle. This lean look can be very attractive if that's what's natural for you.
