Is there a chance that smaller muscle groups tend to recover faster than larger muscle groups? We always hear about over training and giving your muscles adequate time to recover. But we all see the curl jockey's that curl 3 times a week or the guys that do abs every day and it seems like they actually do make great progress in those areas. So I was curious if that, being smaller muscles, they recover faster and can be worked more often as a result. I know when I was a curl jockey in high school I had awesome arms (but nothin' else ). Now my work outs are rounded out and built around compound lifts and my arms don't seem nearly as strong or big as they did in previous years. But on the flip side my back, chest and legs are getting huge and they get about 6 days rest. I hope this train of thought doesn't seem to stupid. I know muscles are muscles are muscles so it shouldn't matter. But I'm still curious to hear your thoughts.
