    What is your favorite or best lift?

    Just for fun would love to see how many are benchers, dead, or squatters. I predict a lot of benchers and deadlifters and not as much squatters as your favorite. But I could be wrong.

    My order is deadlift first, then squat , then bench.

    That is very interesting. I wonder if the difference of using gear or going raw makes a difference for others as well as you best lift.

    Currently my favorite is bench, but squat is a close second and I tend to go back and forth between my favorites. I would like to enjoy deadlift, but I have some back problems that get irritated every time I try to deadlift. I have just about given up on the lift.

    I can see that my prediction is going to be wrong. Interesting.

    My favorite lift is the Zercher squat. Best lift is either the deadlift or the bench.

    Deadlift by far. Squat is a 2nd, and bench is my least favorite. It's kind of ironic b/c I consider it as my best lift, though (bodyweight wise)

    Best: Dead, Bench, Squat
    Fave: Dead, Bench, Squat

    I used to like squat more before I hurt my back and knee, and it used to be probably my best lift. It's slowly getting back to where it was, though, so I'm liking it more and more.

    Raw: deadlift, bench, squat
    With gear: squat, bench, deadlift

    I love deadlifting raw, since it just represents such brute strength to me. It's my number one priority right now, just because I love pulling.

    On the other hand, I hate deadlifting in a suit, because I have no idea how to do it. It might be because my suit is too tight, but I have a really difficult time getting down to the bar, and it's no fun. Geared squat, on the other hand, is really fun, because I feel like a badass with 700 pounds on my back.

    It is squats for me. Nothing beats coming up with a PR, that feeling can't be beat. Deadlift is a close second. Hell, thinking about it... I like them both... that's like asking me which kid I love the most.

    I love inclined presses cause they can work both chest and shoulders equally.

    Dead -> Squat -> Bench

    Honestly I hate bench, but it's one of the "big 3" so I do it anyway.

    I'd love to just dead/squat 3 times per week.
