Deadlift is my best lift, but squat is an equal favorite.
Train,train hard.Eat,eat lots and sleep even more.
Glad to see I'm not the only one that doesn't love the bench
Trying not to die young.
Best - Bench, Squat, Deadlift
Favorite - Squat, Bench, Deadlift
Barbell Rows, Incline presses and Hack Squats..................these are easily my favorites. A good set of Nosebreakers doesn't suck either.
Favorite: squats then deads then bench
Best: deads then bench then squat ( but that's changing pretty quick, ie squats are gaining fast )
??? Squats and deadlifts aren't lifts, they're assistance exercises for your bench!

It used to be bench, then bench a close second, and then finally bench.
Once I got into powerlifting, I fell in love with the deadlift. I would say my order now goes deadlift, squat, and then bench last (b/c it now sucks and I keep straining my pecs).
My favorite to train is the Squat. My best is bench.
as of now...Dead, Squat, Bench
Once the bench gets up there some more, it may change
I've always loved squatting, and it's always been my best lift. Benching is a very close 2nd though. It's my worst lift, but heavy bench day (Friday) is the best day of the week for me.

I hate squats..lol
Bench then McDonalds,I squat and deadlift just because.
I'd have to say a tie between bench and squat, which is ironic since deadlifting is probably my best lift at the moment.
I secretly love the bench press but I get annoyed by everyone who does not lift asking me how much I bench that I tell people I don't bench press. If someone who doesn't lift for once asks me what I squat or deadlift and not what I bench I think I would keel over in disbelief.
my fav is always the one I find hardest. Right now thats squat.
Deadlifts got my vote.
Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.
Deadlifting is awesome - especially when you have long legs, short torso and long arms.
But squat and bench are the ones that I really need to bring up. Bench especially.
Currently: 6'3", 220#, 295/235/430
Goals (for now): 230#, 355/260/445
Some time in the distant future: 275#, 750/500/750
Deadlift. Its the lift that most people can relate to as well, you can either pick it up or you can't.
favorite- squats, deads, bench
best- deads, squats, bench

Deadlifts. My entire build allows me to excel in this lift....the greatest test of pure strength?
My benches are good too.
Squats are my weakest at the moment. MY ROM is crap and I do 5xpower/3xoly/3xfront followed by shoulder work. It kills and a dread each session. But squats are the king.
Benching is what im best at but there is nothing like nailing a good squat at any level.
