    If we're excluding the most common core lifts, I'll go with the one-arm dumbbell row (with hand and knee on bench). I have been doing these pretty much since I started lifting, and it just seems like a very effective exercise. Great ROM, really lets you retract that shoulder blade. And I've been increasing weight/reps more consistently than probably any other lift.

    One legged dead lifts and one legged squats with a Smith machine (plus I finally found a good use for the Smithy).

    I substituted these for a year when my back was injured. Back is now 110%, made some hypertrophy gains and they are such a challenge.

    I would say it's because it's one of the most difficult exercises to do. You have to be flexible and strong from head to toe to do it properly.
    Become brilliant at the basics. Everything else will work itself out.

    It's no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    Exactly this

    I did it for 8 months and started to notice I was spending more on physio and chiro then on my membership. In this 8 month period I only became marginally stronger, and never got particularly good at anything one thing, there was never a chance in a one hour class done 3 times per week. Its definitely not a sustainable program for most older folks like myself. That being said it did put a barbell in my hands and exposed me to all sorts of different ways of conditioning and lifting (that can be done better in different programs).

    Beat me to it. I had put these in as warm up to squatting. Was literally using the bar only. By christ they are tough.

    I'm boring, I love squats.

    I just saw somebody do them at the gym tonight. Maintaining the balance looks incredibly challenging, but are they actually very useful for strength development? I can't overhead press nearly enough weight to be challenging for squats. So it seems like this would be mostly a coordination/balance exercise? With a pretty good chance of dropping a barbell on your head?

    Crossfit as a concept is fine, as are most training methodologies. How the concept has been implemented, in a rush to make money, is the problem.

    Overhead squats use a lot of different muscles (like all of the big compounds) and are arguably the best core/stability exercise out there.

    The perfected version of the muscle up is fine; it's what people have to go through to get there that is the problem. The kipping like jerky motion used to transition from the pullup to the "dip" portion is very harsh on the shoulders, elbows and soft tissue.
    Screw nature; my body will do what I DAMN WELL tell it to do!

    The only dangerous thing about an exercise is the person doing it.

    They had the technology to rebuild me. They made me better, stronger, faster......

    One exercise I rarely see anyone do that I love is goblet squats. It's my third leg exercise after squats and lunges and I really like the fact that I can get very deep on the squat...can definitely feel it in the glutes.

    I do only goblet squats and front squats ATM.

    I love front squats especially since they bruise my shoulders so I get to experience extra pain.

    you will perhaps become the first woman to do a muscle up. You need to me able to do at least 15 pullups (20 is better) to give muscle up a good try.

    Personally, I am thinking about backflip. Wouldn't it be a neat thing learn? I am yet to even try it once. But, like your muscle up thing, it is on my list of "dim and distant".

    I like the one where you sort of deadlift the bar with overhand grip. Then you do a quick calf raise and butt pinch while you shrug down and do what look like a reverse curl. Then you stand up and refocus. Followed by another butt flex as you punch the roof overhead with the weight above you.

    It's always been my favorite.
    This above all..
    To thine ownself be true..
    And it must follow, as the night the day..
    Thou can'st not then be false to any man..

    With regard to the actual subject of the thread, the HIP PUSH UP is an awesome exercise. https://youtu.be/kVzNFAm3N2Q

    This, I dunno about pure strength, but I can tell you I expected an empty bar overhead to be a hell of a lot easier than they are. I use 'em now as a warm up to back squats cause they really kick the core into gear, I find get a better brace if I use these to warm up.

    That's looks kinda dumb tbh...I thought hip push ups positions hands close to hips and full push up not gets you to do a plank and then hip dip..I'm clearly missing the training benefits of that

    People that smoke cigarettes look dumb. Just do them and you'll realize their benefit. Try the one foot/one hand version.

    The fly machine has been my favorite lately. I've been doing a double pump technique. I do one rep, then only let it half way back before squeezing back together again, then repeat.

    Since I can't do Olympic lifts or their derivatives at my gym, (well I can do them but If I have a miss...that would be trouble!!!) because of this I have decided to do all my training in my garage during the warmer months. The misses can be even more impressive than the actual lifts sometimes. My ceiling in the basement is too low as well, I cant even do a military press with 450mm dia plates unless I am sitting.

    Squats, Deadlifts, Dips, Bench Press, Pull Ups, Chin Ups.


    In fact; they are the only exercises I do (With a weight belt).


    They boost the highest amount of testosterone for a reason.

    Deadhang. Deadhang until physical failure, not mentally given up because of pain.
