when I first started road racing I was lifting light upper body weights, my friends got on my case and said “totally unnecessary to lug that around”.  Although I only lifted light weights, I looked like I was into body building, actually had someone ask to enter partners competition.  I guess that's when i stopped lifting arms,  but seriously my arms fatigued really bad when I moved to longer distances.  I never could figure out if they “should”.  My times did get better as my upper body faded to nothing :-
