    Bench, Squat, or Deadlift.....

    I like the bench because people like it the most and its the easiest lift. But not my favorite. My favorite is Deadlifts because it puts on size and mass!:icon_twis

    Don't be a douche, Miaou. This thread is specifically for Squat, bench, and deadlift.

    My favorite lift is the Squat because it's the tits, obviously.

    My favorite lift is also the squat.


    Now I'll start a thread specifically for squat, bench, deadlift and SOHP. Just 'cause.

    I have a love-hate relationship with Bench. It's my favourite lift but also my weakest.:redface:

    Deadlift for 3 reasons.

    I can lift more than any other lift with it.

    It feels the most natural to me.

    You can't really "cheat" like you can with squats or bench.

    Just to nit-pick... you can cheat on a deadlift by hitching and ramping though that's not as bad as 1/4 squatting or invisible 3 board pressing.

    Bench by far. I always hated the dead-lift and the back injuries I sustained during my last couple years of high school wrestling didn't help matters. I also had to stop squatting for a while after my injuries, but I was never really any good at that due to my damn cross country chicken legs.

    Deadlift. But overall picking shit off the ground and putting it over your head is my favorite.

    Over my head or over your head?

    I don't think I'm all that comfortable with the former proposition.

    I believe this point is commonly phrased as:

    "Can't fake a fucking deadlift"

    Should be on t-shirt.
