What's your strongest body part genetically and physically

For me it would be my shoulders i can press 130 lb dumbbell for reps 6 or so and they are pretty ridiculous looking delts on or off , then it would have to be my chest I caN do 325 plus on the incline bench, but what's funny is my biceps look really good but Are pretty weak I don't like going past 25-30lb dumbells lol.Discalimer I am definently not a power lifter nor do I think I'm strong I just know there are some animals on here male and female that probably got some good stats

DT my strongest has to be my

DT my strongest has to be my back. I can bb row 315+ for sets and reps, db row the 125 endlessly. (125 is biggest db we have) I can chain a plate and a 25 to my waist and do pullups like a mad man. Of course that probably explains why I had a partial muscle tear in my back a few werks back. Still can't do pullups or lat pull downs!

My weak points are my delts. Everytime I get heavy I hurt my right shoulder, so I go easy on them now, and used to be my chest but I've put so much time and effort to improve my chest it's become a strong point for me.

Wow

315 barbell row are you talking fully bent over row that's super impressive I can Yates row at a true 45 about 335 to 365 depending if I'm not beat up from work but I can't do a bent over row that heavy that's impressive brother to be honest with you I have great upper body and legs but my back could be much better I think a big thick back looks bad ass keep it up man!!!

Thanks dt! I use a belt and I

Thanks dt! I use a belt and I'm bent over at least a 45 degree angle. One way I made my bench bigger was with a bigger row. I remember reading years ago that your row should be the same if not bigger than your bench.

Ehhh....I've always had very pathetic lats. You'd laugh at me on pullups. Lol. But I can bench a ton....

Sheiko a famous russian powerlifting coach doesn't focus on lats at all and they all have awesome benches.....

My strongest areas are lower back, hamstrings, and pecs.

I know who sheiko is. I had a

I know who sheiko is. I had a good friend using sheiko's techniques and workout programs. He stumbled onto a world class powerlifter who took him under his wing. One of his biggest focuses to improve bench is having a strong back. Benching is a full body lift which includes engaging the lats. My buddy is over 300 lbs and can rack out 20 pullups, but for bench rows are the bigger focus. I'm not taking anything away from sheiko, but Westside Barbell and Metal Militia put huge focus on the back. If anyone wants a bigger bench then get a bigger squat, and bb row. I stand by my statement that if you bench more than you row then your not reaching your full bench potential.

I train using westside myself

I train using westside myself and I also train upper back regularly. Muscle imbalances are never a good thing. 

Only trying to say you can bench a lot without having strong lats. I'll never row what I bench.

My strongest Body parts are

My strongest Body parts are chest, shoulders, tris and back.  when I was 25 YO I repped 315 shoulder press for 4. I don't do them now but my bench was 420 last winter. I am staying away from that now to avoid injuries.. I only started with AAS use at 44 YO and it helped me regain strength but too many injuries. I can do Tris all day with whatever weight is available.

Extremely weak Biceps, Traps are small... forearms are ok but not great...

Legs are my strongest point.

Legs are my strongest point. Nothing spectacular by any stretch comparatively to competitive athletes. 480 is my current 1RM PR in squats, and can do 405 for 6 good deep reps. Leg press being my strongest. I can rep with 1200lbs. By far my weakest body part is chest. Max bench is 345. My goal is and always will be to get to 405. At 44 yrs old not sure I will be able to due to age but I will keep pushing so long as the joints and progress continue.

My Chest is by far one of my

My Chest is by far one of my biggest strengths. Both in size and strength. But my legs are big and cut but much weaker then a lot of people. I mean I work out with a kid regularly that squats 455 lbs for 8 and weighs 190lbs. I weigh 230-240lbs and squat 365 for 6. But when we pose my legs kill his.

Now arms, particularly biceps, don't grow as fast. I'd like to add some real density in the biceps.

Nice brother

hey you know what really helped me for biceps was of course using the cable machine but the real trick was stretching my biceps between sets not every set but a stretch after 3 set maybe 3x total and man my biceps blew up the pump you get after you stretch if feels like you realeass the flood gates lol

Don't Trip thanks for the tip

Don't Trip thanks for the tip. My triceps grow fast, but biceps not the situation. I mean they aren't small but not nice and dense. The muscle bellies aren't as pretty as my chest and even delts.

Strength

I don't think I'm strong, but I'm pretty good at certain exercises. If I had to say what my strong points are, itd be back, delts and arms. Everyone says my legs are huge, but I dont see it. The most impressive lifts I have are Bent Rows with 405x8, Skullcrushers with 185x10, DB Shoulder Presses with 110x15. My best squat in October was 405x10. Other than that, I have nothing too impressive to share. My Bench has never been good and I don't like doing anything for less than 8 reps and with a controlled negative. After my recent shoulder injury and my 30th birthday looming early next year, my new approach is that if I can't get it for 6 reps, then I can't get it. I'd love to chase a 405 Bench or a 585 squat, but every time I start training in the 2-4 rep range, I get hurt. It's not worth it.

I 42, and when I go heavy with low reps I hurt something too. It fucking sucks to get injured, so I've been hitying higher reps with moderate weight. My joints feel so much better!

405 for 8 reps in bent rows,

405 for 8 reps in bent rows, thats fuckin awesome! My 315 for 6 reps in rows are with some full body momentum. Im striving to catch up with you in that lift.

Rows

I've always been better at pulling than pushing. In high school when everyone was benching, I did a lot of deadlifts and power cleans. I pulled 315 at 15 years old. Cleaned 225. I must have built a good base during those first couple years. Strong biceps too. No weak links in the chain.

it has changed threw the the

it has changed threw the the years , when i was in prison i was dead lifting 555, and squating 450 for scrappers.  ,but my bench was real weak like a 185 max ...and i weighed 175 lbs 

now.im.50 and knees are shot so isnt my back so i stay around 225 repping , my strong point now amazingly is bench a few cycles back which im talking a year ago when i went heavy 325 on bench but.my routers are shot ...and i dont believe ill go over 225 for reps anymore ...im old im beat up , look good for my age.  and doing 225 for sets of 12-15 on everything aint to bad.  can you believe i must curl.with only the bar (45lbs) the tennis elbow.  will not allow anything heavier but i got 19" arms.  .tris are so so but the tennis elbow on skulls still bothers me so ill hold it at around 115.    

i am.a example of what happens to some one banging the shit for 30 years heavy., the knees the back the tennis elbow.   lol.  young bucks wait 25 years.  

now its about looking good and trying to feel good

I figured that would be your response sieg, but a low dose of deca probably would be ok, and do the joints good. I've been considering it myself...

Do you know your family background by any chance? I always think people with genetically blessed calves have ancestors who rode horseback.

I do. Scandinavian (Norway

I do. Scandinavian (Norway and Sweden), Germany (southern), Russian/Polish (border kept moving).  My family is either muscular, or fat as hell.  Only two I can think of are thin; one uncle, and my mother.  My dad was kind of thin, but was known as the guy with the "legs" in college apparently.  The Russian/Polish ancestors were farmers (well everyone farmed back then I'm pretty sure), my German ancestors were mostly military according to memoirs, and liked to brawl.  The Scands were mostly from northern coastal regions (Rorvik, Norway), the Swedish I am unsure of, but word has it that I have relatives somewhere near Stockholm.  How about you?

Ancestry

Haven't the slightest idea. Never met my father. Mothers side debates about it. I'm pretty sure I'm not black or Hispanic, but I can't be certain. My mom and I have the same forearms though. It's freaky.
