What's your favorite body part to train?
Just curious as to what body part you guys love to train the most? It's varied for me over the years from chest, to biceps....etc.
Right now I'd say that shoulder night is my favorite workout night. Thats really kinda funny because I used to HATE training my delts. I especially hated BB military presses, back in the day. But that very exercise has now become one of my favorites to do.
Plus I love it when I'm finished with my delt/trap workout and it feels like I have two cannonballs on top of my arms
Incidentally my LEAST favorite workout night is leg night. I have bad knees from wrestling when I was younger and I had a SERIOUS ankle fracture a couple years ago that really did a number on my left ankle. I've had 3 surgeries on it trying to get it back to being in good shape and I am most likely going to have to have another one maybe next year. So all that being said.....you can kind of see why it's a little hard for me to get motivated on leg night, lol. I still work them as hard as I can......nobody wants a big upper body and chicken legs.....it just takes a lot more motivation to get in the gym on that night!

I decided I no longer like training any part of my body. I think it is just a phase but... the least favorite is probably chest. I enjoy working my calves, I guess.

Since I have finnaly got the strength in my back after surgury. Training my legs is always the highlight of my week. There is no stopping me now, Heavy it is

My favorite now a days is shoulders. I used to HATE doing them reason being now that I look back at it is because I used to be so weak in the shoulder dept. Ha Ha my least favorite BY FAR is abs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I said back..but I've decided that since only my forearms and calves show I'm changing my routine to:
Standing Clalf Raises
Donkey Calf Raises
Seated Calf Raises
Rev Wrist Curls
Even the Prez borrowed my routine.

Used to be legs, but no more hardcore training for me in that dept. Now it is back; there is nothing better than having the feeling that your back is a mile wide.

I went with back, as deads are by far my favorite exercise!! I hate looking forward to leg day, but if I manage to work up the intensity enough to get a good wo, I do feel the best AFTER legs! That full body, total exhaustion thing that lasts several hours!

For me, it has to be quads. I used to dread leg day, but now it has changed. Due to a recent routine change, I noticed my quads got bigger. So now I look forward to the crazy pumps on my quads that make me "limp out of the gym". 2nd second part are my biceps, crazy pumps, "it's better than cumin". LOL

Gotta say legs. I used to dread leg day, but now I really look forward to it. I usually start with 6 set of squats, 4 sets of box squats, then go the leg press and machines. I walk funny for at least two days afterwards.

Back is by far my favorite I just love doing deadlifts, never understood why not many people do them but they are awesome.

Hamstrings. There is no better feeling than bending my leg and feeling like a bicep is popping out of the back of it.

Quads...it's a Love/Hate relationship.... I love squatting heavy, but my body hates me for a couple days after.
2nd is arms!! You can't beat the pump!!

For me it's a tossup between back or triceps. Back was probably the first muscle group that I really figured out how to isolate, and as a result I've always loved working it. Triceps are one muscle group that I always experience an insane pump in, so it's another favorite as well.
Legs are a muscle group I have a love/hate relationship with. I always absolutely dread the period leading up to the workout, but once I get going, and properly get myself psyched up, I love the exertion that is necessary.

I love to work Triceps. They grow easily for me and you get the, "man, you have big arms" comments a lot I recently started training traps and shoulders with much more intensity and new routines that have shown positive gains which has in turn made them a favorite too.

I used to hate legs when i couldn't get the form of squats right back in the day when first starting out, but once i nailed the form and stuck with it and saw the gains i loved training them. But my absolute favourite is Back, my back like my legs respond VERY easily, Triceps are also up their for me i love training them. Chest which i used to hate training because i had a horrible mind muscle connection is now quite enjoyable to train.

I personally enjoy working my traps. sure it makes up a large portion of the back but doing upright rows to get those traps feels pretty good.
the least has got to be biceps. oh the pain. but it's not that i'm not doing it right. preachers hurt, concentration curls hurt, cambered and straight bars hurt, single arm cable curls hurt. not working out for 5 weeks and then curling 20lbs for 10 reps hurt. just can't win.

Used to be Biceps back when I was in school. But now I would have to say that it is Biceps/Tri's and Chest .. Oh yeah and Lats and delts.. I hate legs.. But then again, thats probably why I have chicken legs..
