I love working on my triceps/back. I have a lot of fat in that area and I like watching it get smaller. I like using the weight machines where you sit and pull down on a bar, you can feel it in your back and shoulders. I hate working out my legs. I have strong legs, but I have RA in my knees so it makes lunges/squats/knee lifts really uncomfortable. I absolutely hate running/jogging/treadmill and burpees.
Yup, my second favorite day is the tricep part of my Chest & Tricep workout (usually Mondays). Flat Bench Press 4 sets (pyramids) Rotating Inclined and Declined Bench Press both Barbell and Dumbbells (4 sets) Flat, Inclined or Declined Flyes (4 sets pyramids) EZ Bar Tricep 21's (4 sets at a static weight) Lying Tricep Extentions (4 sets) Seated Two-Hand Overhead Extensions (4 sets heavy dumbbell)
Before I started liking shoulders my triceps got a lot of attention and then my horseshoe started to appear and all was good with me.

I like working out the arms. My fave moves are bicep curls and tricep dips.

When I first started strength training it was my triceps. I found it an easy muscle to build that looks really nice! Not that tricep extentions are all that easy but the muscle toned up pretty quickly.
Right now, I'm really concentrating on my abs. After two pregnancies they were pretty defeated. I couldn't even do a sit up. Now I'm getting nice strong, firm abs and I can now sit up from a prone position with just my abs no problem.
No doubt about it Shoulder & Trap day (usually on Friday mornings) is my favorite workout of the week. Seated Barbell Shoulder Press 4 sets (heavy) Dumbbell Front Raises 4 sets Dumbbell Lat Raises 4 sets (sometimes I superset with front raises) Bent-Over Dumbbell Lat Raises 5 sets (light to heavy) Barbell Shoulder Shrugs 4 sets of 20 reps (heavy as I can go) Seated Dumbbell Shrugs 5 sets High Cable Rows 5 sets
My traps are starting to pop and you can only get that meat collar one way, by lifting weights. My GF LOVES the look and so do I.
Hate list? Legs & Abs though I try never to miss a leg workout and this past month I've been doing Bulgarian Split Squats and my bum is getting seriously rounder and harder and at age 50 it's quite a feat, lol!

I was wondering when working out, which body part do you like working out the most? (and the least)
Do you have a favorite fitness move? (Push-ups, pull-ups, bench press?)
My favorite part to work is the shoulders- and I have the greatest difficulty with the abs, though I know it's important to work them out.
