    I actually do have muscle on my back, cool, then if thats the case then the Rriceps would be hardest to build for me, I had no problem with fore-arms, infact I never trained them but they are Muscely, mabye its the things I do in my normal life

    Here's a vote for chest. I just can't seem to make much progress in developing a muscular chest. I just started Doug's 4 Day Split, hopefully it will help.

    How about doing the same poll with the same options except:

    What muscle group is the easiest to build?

    legs legs legs, a problem for most ppl, luckily i had alot of lean muscle on my legs before i started to weightlift, so hopefully it'll give me time to get em going! But they seem to be a tough one to start building, squats ofcourse are very important.

    For me in all my time that I have been working out I have seen very little improvement in my calves, they definitely have changed the least amount of all of my muscles. Although, I have developed some veins recently on my calves most of the reason may be because I have abnormally small lower legs.

    I chose chest, it has always been my weak point. I have to push real hard for progression in my chest workouts every week where they just happen with back and leggs.

    Nice ressurection. I am surprised to see that chest is the most problematic area for most people (by 1 vote). I have trouble with my chest and shoulders, but voted on chest because the mass just doesn't seem to stay on.

    Shoulders.
    My anterior delts lack, even though they get hit hard with pressing exercises.

    Triceps and chest are problem areas for me too.

    Legs/Calves? No problem, easy builders for me.
    Consistency is the key
