Default Small/Ignored Bodyparts

We all know that standard cookie cutter bodybuilding workouts hit every possible muscle group. But most trainees don't hit every muscle group. Which groups don't you hit, and why?

I'll start...

Calves...My calves are already genetically the size of rhino legs, so I don't train them.

Abs...I hate ab work, always have, always will.

Obliques....I did once train obliques with side bends and broom handle twisters, but no longer. Also, I fear the thick waist.

Forearms...Personally, I think average sized forearms make the triceps/biceps look larger then they are. Plus, I hate forearm work. I figure deadlifts and bicep work do enough for the forearms.

Lower back...I don't do anything necessarily aimed at the lower back. I do hit it with deadlifts, etc, but no hyperextensions for me. My lower back has always been strong and I don't want to overtrain it.

I stopped doing abs because I think I have an abdominal hernia that I will have looked sometime later. My main fear is not being able to work out for a while.

DavideC is off to a bad start
Default

I train since 2003.
First year was devoted to get in shape (i was really overweight) than i focused on strenght training.
In that period i really don't care of proportions or other BBesc stuff:
traps,calves, forearms, abs aren't directly trained.

In the last year i switch to a more BBesc style of training.. so i started to be devoted to a more complete training style:
i have added direct abs work. I also train my forearms (once every 2weeks, cause i still use heavy compound lift and my forearms are quite good) and calves work (every week during leg sessions.)

I also added direct traps training when i don't do DL.

By now i try to train every body parts. Styll my triceps need more size....(a lot more size).

Good to see you again Davide.

I forgot completely about traps. My traps get plenty sore from Yates Rows and Deadlifts, so I don't hit them at all.

It's funny though, when I train more for strength, I do heavy ab work and power shrugs. But, I also put aside bicep work and direct tricep work. (I stick to closegrip benches)

I ignore my forearms, traps and calves.

Forearms I feel get enough work with upper body training, plus I am a chick so who cares. Same with traps.

Calves, well I should train them, but I keep flopping and "planning to fix that" I have been "planning" to fix that for 10 years now

The more I do Yates Rows, the more I become an addict. They hit my back, traps and rear delts like no other exercise.

I don't train any more my calves and my forearms, for something like the same reasons with MaB, especially for calves.
That does not mean there is not a possibility to train them again in the future.

But Traps, I hit them directly too (except for the work they receive from Deadlifts, Rows etc, with shrug variations too), because for me it's a bodypart with a major role, not a small muscle at all, and it's my favorite bodypart.
(my favorite does not mean necessary my best)

Me too. In pure strenght training a strong core is a must...
