    What's your favorite body part to work?

    I tried searching for an old thread on this, I mean, I'm 100% certain it's been done. But the search function either sucks or I'm an idiot (probably the latter).

    What's your favorite body part to work? Like most, I preferred arms/chest at first, but I'm *really* digging shoulders right now (I simply loving lifting heavy things over my head) and starting to get into working my back (kinda tricky for me to work my back, and I think I like the difficulty). Still not a fan of leg work though...

    you?

    Deads are my favorite but I'm a big fan of overhead work as well (I suck at it, but I'm still a big fan of it). Bringing 375 pounds to my waist was a rush but to be able to put that kind of weight over your head? Now *that* would be sweet.

    My fave body part to work out is definitely my back, just because I love deadlifts and barbell rows so much. The only thing I don't like about working out my back is doing pullups. I know they're a fantastic exercise so I make sure to do them each and every week, but man do I hate them. The moment before I start my set gives me the same feeling in my stomach as I used to get before having to run the beep test. Terrible.

    i LOVE squats...lunges are just as awesome...

    Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights. Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy - RhodeHouse

    i like the way this guy thinks!!!! Legs then Back for me as well!!


    squats and deads rock!!
    Way down this road, in a gym far away, a young man was once heard to say, "I've repped high and I've repped low, No matter what I do my legs won't grow."

    He tried leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses, too. Trying to cheat these sissy workouts he'd do. From the corner of the gym where the big men train, Through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain.

    Where the big iron rides high and threatens lives, Where the noise is made with big forty fives. A deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees, A very big man with legs like trees.

    Laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack, Chalking his hands and monstrous back, Said "Boy stop lying and don't say you've forgotten, Trouble with you is you ain't been SQUATTIN"

    Back for sure, I love doing heavy rows and shrugs. Also, I do enjoy bench night. I usually get extra fired up for a big bench.

    4. Leg press (Its cool watching your legs push like 600 or 700 LBs for reps ) right now I do 530 so not quite at 600 (give me time!)

    I'll probably get beat up for this hehe, but I like training side delts. I'm no curl jockey or anything, 90% of all my excercises are compounds, I just really like adding width to my shoulders.
    Second would either be quads, calves or chest.
