I work a lot on my abs (Pilates) and I LOVE it, and I get results. I work less on my arms, so they're not really muscly - more like stick thin.

i prefer to work my abs(because its the one muscle that i need most work) - i train my arms enough at work, carting around wooden chairs & tables and crates of bottles..

I LOVE arm workouts. Post-pregnancy (even though it's years later) my stomach will never see the light of day, so I'd rather focus on what people will see!

I love ab work because I love the results! But I love doing bicep curls in the gym next to all the tough guys. It's an ego boost to keep up with them.

You'd have to be very low body fat to get abs, so I don't really do them - besides you unknowingly train your abs when you do more compound excercises which is alot better, but I do however do the plank alot.

Yes, lunges are the devil. Squats are no walk in the park either.

I can do abs forever!!! I don't like doing arms much because I tore my trapezius a few years back so most arm things bug the hell outta my shoulder.

Other - legs! I was blessed with my father's chicken legs. It's good because I don't have to worry about the appearance of them too much (until I reach the saddle bag area at least!), but it makes working them out so strenuous, like I'm such a weakling!

I don't even do arms. I do alot of aerobics so that tones them enough for me. But I have naturally bulky arm muscles so I try not to work them any more then I have to. My mom works hers 2 times a week and she looks like a body builder...not the look I'm personally going for :)

I actually really like to do both BTW someone said that they do not like doing abs because its too easy and all I can say is you need to change your routine because what is the point of working out if it is easy

Abs! So much harder to do. I actually dread doing them. With arms, its whatever, they aren't that hard.

i love doing arms. i hate abs! i try to follow all the correct form yet it still hurts/burns my lower back (i have a lower back problem so it might just be me). the only ones i like are the bicycle style abs.

I love doing arms and have a great excercise called all days. You take a curl bar and lift 8 times with your arms at the end of the bar, 8 times with your arms in the middle of the bar and 8 times with your arms really close together. Great workout because it works all your arm muscles.
