    My biceps... or so it seems?
    If I ever take time off from working out, and start back up again, my biceps gain in size so much quicker than the rest of my body. In fact, even before I started working out seriously my biceps were always my best muscular feature.
    I've trained with buddies in the past who curl the same or more than me but can't get the same size or definition.
    What's the deal with this? Does everyone have a muscle/muscle group that will just "show" better?

    The unmentionables always seem to be a crowd-pleaser! icon_wink.gif

    Im such a hard gainer, that I have no idea if anything magically grows back (MUSCLE-WISE) after a hiatus.

    Hmm... I may consider hating the OP.

    My biceps will grow a little if I work them to failure every single day (e.g. pruning season in the orchard.) But slack off for a week and they utterly vanish.

    But if I so much as lift my arms to wave at a friend, my lats pop out absurdly. Completely mal-proportioned.

    Dunno what stands out on me, so far almost everything has grown in shape since I started working out..
    If I had to guess, my chest seems to be changing the fastest.. along with my abs.

    Everyone has a certain muscle on their body that is easy to build and one that is hard to build.

    For me:
    Easy, my traps

    Hard, my calves

    Legs, arms, chest, and back......oddly, the areas that I hit the hardest in the gym. If I was a thinking man, I would assume it would have to do with my workout routine, and a bit of genetics.

    I'm a very hard gainer, so for me, it's all difficult.

    But probably chest and biceps are easier....

    Legs are the most difficult, but with all the running I do, that has helped a lot.

    I would say my #1 magic muscle is my calfs. Ever since I was little, people have commented on my legs, specifically my calfs. I think it's because I walk on my toes lol.

    My thighs and butt have also always been big, but they used to be really soft when I was fat (200 pounds with hardly any muscle). Now, they are a lot harder. In fact, one of my friends recently grabbed my butt and said, "Wow, I think that's the hardest ass I've ever felt!" lol.

    I wish my upper body responded like this. Don't get me wrong, it has responded, but not quite to the level my lower half has (which is probably why I'm drawn to guys that have great upper bodies). However, my dang wrists and forearms I feel have been my greatest problems. I'll admit that there are times when I skip them when I probably shouldn't, usually because I'm running late for something. Working on them though.

    - calves

    but no matter how much I work out I will always have that soft lower abdomen.

    pun time: oh, well ... in reference to my lower abdominal ... it's grown on me.

    I figured it out, my legs are the fastest growing.. in 3 weeks my jean size went from fitting into a 28 to wearing 30.
    Apparently my butt grew bigger too.. whodathunkit?
