I love working out my arms and upper back. I've had back issues in the past and I love knowing that I am making my back stronger with every set.

Doing biceps and triceps used to be my favorite, but nowadays I enjoy doing legs the most, which is quite surprising, since that used to be my most hated workout. I like training my legs because the exercises are so full-on...You really have to use your whole body.

For my workout, I use a NuStepper, leg press, and machines for triceps, biceps, and lats. I have a torn meniscus in my knee so I have been unable to exercise my legs.

Has to be quads. After a good session, I can't get up the 3 flights of stairs to my apartment. That's when you know you're training hard

Definitly Gluteus, Hamstrings and quadriceps.
I feel more down to earth whitch gives me a powerfull and strong feeling.
" My legs will carry me".
A nice bonus is the extra burn since they are large muscle groups.

I really enjoy training every muscle group equally. And even though I hate doing legs, I still enjoy and feel great after my leg workout. I look forward to going to the gym every day and on rest days I wish I was there.
I just started running again using the barefoot technology(haven't ran in about 15 years do to my knees, but since using these shoes, my knees are completely fine)

For me I have to say it is shoulders. I am such a yogi that if I neglect my shoulder workout I can tell in yoga when it comes time to hold all the warrior II poses and triangle poses. My shoulders get tired from holding my arms up and I have to drop them to recover. But my second favorite is my back and I am trying to strengthen it up from working in nursing homes damaging and injuring it many times over the years.

It is hard to choose which group is my favorite. I enjoy training all of them. I love the pump I get for training my chest and my arms. I love how strong I feel training my back and legs. I really like to train my shoulders because of how they are the top of the V cut body shape.

If I had to choose, I would say arms. No wait, shoulders. It is shoulders because of how strong it makes me feel and how they help to make you look like you are in shape.
