    What's your best physical feature and what advice would you give to others who want to enhance that feature on themselves.

    Obviously, keep it to gym built muscles..even if your best feature is your eyes...lets get some tips out there for others.

    For my frame, my arms are pretty big, they seem to respond better than other muscle groups on my body. I used to hammer curl as heavy as I could for my main attack on my biceps, but I've found recently (in the last few months) a nice effect by using a giant set of barbell curls, dumbbell curls and hammer curls. Choose a weight I can get to 15 on (I know it seems high, but it fills the muscle with blood and gets a good pump) and do all 3 exercises without a rest. Then rest for 2 minutes and do it again. Then rest 2 minutes and do it a final time. My arms are dying at the end.

    Arms. No real secret to them other than just working out and taking in lots of protein.

    I guess I'm lucky to have fairly broad shoulders but they don't really look capped unless I work them hard. If I do, they develop fairly quickly and show definition pretty easily. I have a friend that can work his shoulders all day long and they still don't look all that wide.

    Legs..
    You don't have to squat the weight of a compact car to get big legs. I typically squat ~200lbs and keep the reps around 6 - 8. And I use proper form. But I credit most of my leg development to running and hiking. Obviously, I'm not a marathon runner. I run enough to stimulate my quads, but not so much that I lose overall muscle mass. Point is, try different leg exercises and find one that your legs respond to. Could be running, could be cycling, could be stair climbers, etc.

    Back/Lats..
    Pull-ups. There is no other exercise. Lat pull-down machines and assisted pull-up machines don't do it. I start all my upper body workouts with pull-ups as a warm up exercise. I do 15 - 20 on the first set, 10 - 15 on the second set, 5 - 7 negatives on the third set.

    Legs... particularly calves and quads.

    The secret is, get born in a country where everybody is expected to bike through traffic, rain and wind from age 5 onwards.

    I never worked my legs in the gym ever, everything I do work in the gym doesn't look half as good as my legs icon_sad.gif

    Forearms - they're nothing special, but I've probably made the most progress there since they were tiny. Just did wrist curls w/ dumbells.

    Probably...calves.

    A lot of my calf development probably comes from outside the gym. I do a ton of walking and if I'm going up a staircase one step at a time I always mostly use my calves. Doesn't sound like much at first but going up and down six flights of stairs three to four times a day every day using just your calves as much as possible really adds up quickly.

    Inside the gym, just hitting them hard I guess.
