I am gunna get back into bodybuilding and I've been reading about genetic potential etc. and about muscle bellies and that long are better then short. I don't want to be massive but I wouldn't mind getting some decent size but it seems that I may have some pretty short muscle bellies. I am 5'8" got like 6" wrists, got tiny bones etc. everything is against me it seems. What bodybuilders have fairly short muscle bellies. I just feel defeated thinking I won't be able to get to a good size.

Muscle bellie sizes are not dependent on height. In fact if anything, shorter people with small waistlines tend to have comparatively fuller muscle bellies and can develop a competetive physique more quickly than taller people, who also struggle with overall symmetry.

So don't fret about it, just get to it.

Be well.

Ok heres a picture of my arm..I'm pretty tiny. I read this article on muscle bellies you can view here http://forum.bodybuilding.com/archi...p/t-240331.html
Like jboldman says I shouldn't worry about muscle bellies right now but at the bottom of the article it says multiply your wrist size by 2.3...my wrist size is like 6 so that would be 13.8 inch arms!! I know he says don't hold me to that and this is for the average trainee but good god.

Judging from your picture you've made good progress over an undeveloped arm. Whether you have potential to be a competetive bodybuilder, who knows. But you certainly have potential to build more than you have now, and you can build a very impressive set of guns with dedication and hard work.

Be well.

It's far to early to worry about muscle bellies and wrist size. Bone growth is stimulated thru weight training. Looks like you have decent potential to me.

Oh yeah, I only have a 7 in wrist and my bi's are 18. So I wouldn't worry about that article too much.
