    Biceps are the easiest. I can't for the life of me get pecs and abs are quite difficult too.

    Gotta agree. I don't even like working out my abs.
    I really like working out my back and legs.

    When you say working out legs do you mean like running/cardio?

    Biceps are my problem area. It's very frustrating.

    No. More like squats, leg presses, lunges etc.

    The trick to biceps is the brachialis muscle. Its deep in your biceps and, when developed, will push your biceps to the nice peak we all covet.

    Do hammer curls especially inclined hammer curls and reverse curls with a curved bar.

    Also dumbbell curls where you hold the weights at your side and curl up then rotate your hands so that your knuckles cross your nipples and squeeze. Hard to explain that last one.

    Make sure you are doing preacher curls properly. Most people put the seat too low . You should actually be leaning forward over the support a little.

    Also go to the machine where you use the rope for triceps extensions. Slide it all the way down to the bottom and curl the rope up with both hands until your are doing the front double biceps pose and hold it for a bit.

    Absolutely. Even when I was young and had more T and GH floating around, I never seemed to get beyond 14" biceps. Now, at my advanced age, I've pretty much resigned myself to pencil arms.

    I fixed the bicep problem by doing more compound workouts. I combined biceps and back in a day and I've gotten great results.

    Biceps are easy...the hard part is the forearm. I've got long ass arms, but guys with short arms have bigger forearms. fuckers...

    The preacher curl is a great exercise, but big arms are more dependent on the triceps than the biceps. It is an optical illusion.

    I don't think biceps are the hardest muscle to train - I find that bicep workouts are the hardest for people to execute properly.

    Pick any gym, any day and you'll see someone attempting the bicep curl - and horribly butchering it. Picking weight about ten times heavier than you can handle, swinging the weight up way too fast while rocking back from the toe to the heel, shifting the weight onto the legs, back, etc. pretty much everywhere but the bicep yields pretty piss-poor results. I see everyone walking right up to the bench-press station and curling the barbell as if they're the next Ronnie Coleman (when they could just be using a curl or straight bar instead of occupying the bench and pissing everyone off) and I almost just want to walk by and kick them right in the...

    The preacher curl is another commonly butchered workout you see at the gym - with some fool putting way, way too much weight on the bar, sitting back way too low, grunting and slamming the bar down as loudly as possible, etc.

    Rant aside, practice good, form with a slow but steady and I also agree with compound workouts - pull-ups are a great workout for the bicep when accompanied with curls or hammer curls.
