Weak bodyparts-
1. Calves- They've always been small. I've tried to build them up with varying results. My current program has me hitting them 3 times a week, so we'll see if the added volume helps.

2. Glutes- I used to abe REALLY fat (over 300 lbs.), and held a lot of fat in my back side. Because of that, it's still quite "saggy" and I think it always will be. I'll have to use a glute focussed plan at some point in the next couple years to try and fill it out. There's muscle there, but not enough to fill out the skin.

Weak lifts-
Maximal strength- Yup, my max strength has never been that great. I've always been a good athlete, but it never showed in the weight room. Back in high school at 270 lbs I never squatted more than 405, when many of the guys who weighed what I weighed were pushing 5 plates. Granted, I could power clean 275, but there were guys who were under 200 who could push and pull the same numbers as me on the big three.

I think I excelled in the olympic lifts because I have great coordination, but I could never produce the brute force necessary to hoist huge poundages. In high school for weightlifting we had to perform a clean and jerk and a powerlifting style bench press. I was one of the few guys who could clean and jerk as much as he could bench. Almost every one else benched more.

Weakest Muscle - Forearms. I've been bless with tiny hands so grip has always needed some extra attention. Even so, its has always been extremely slow to progress and negatively effects all pulls, often in a big way.

Weakest lifts - Any pressing. Long history of shoulder injuries has more to do with this than anything else.

Hypertrophy - Lateral and rear delts. Despite the my volume of pressing, pulling and increased in the strength strength of both, I feel as though they haven't budged much.
