Post the bodyparts that progress fastest for you. In size and strength.
Explain the methods you used to get the most growth.
Do you still use that method? If so why? If not why not?
What bodypart progresses the slowest for you?
I’ll start it off.
For me chest grows the fastest and I’ve mentioned that this year I switched to incline only and dumbbell based work for my chest.
I generally stick to the traditional rep ranges for hypertrophy and focus a lot on feeling a stretch. I attempt to push with my chest but that’s very much hit and miss.
Triceps improve very fast in terms of strength. I do dips, close grip floor presses, pushdowns, overhead extensions and sometimes skullcrushers. The mainstay two seems to be pushdowns and overhead extensions.
I actually lift fairly high reps for triceps (8-15) despite hearing they do well with low reps. For me they don’t actually grow as well as they get strong. Wouldn’t mind some tips here.
Biceps and forearms are my problem areas. My biceps don’t seem to ever want to progress in strength. It’s just not the case of lift more reps and next time come back and do less reps on a slightly heavier weight. It just never gets any easier. Wouldn’t mind some input but I’m hoping to steal some of your methods which is why I made this thread.
Forearms are like toothpicks. Since I joined a decent gym I’ve been able to use dumbbells with thicker handles and I’m sure they’ve made some difference but not a whole lot. I’ve noticed if a guy genetically has good calves his forearms tend to suck and vice versa. Odd but just something I noticed.
Looking forward to some juicy information!
