Top 5 exercises
 
I have been reading and lurking but not posting. I am curious what everyone's top 5 exercises are?

If you could only use 5 exercises for building muscle and strength what would they be and why?

bench
pullups
military press

BB flat bench press
Military press
Front squats
DB rows to chest
wide grip Lateral pulldowns

Squat
Deadlift
OH Press
Rows
Dips

Why? Because those exercises let you handle a lot of weight, involves alot of muscles and works the whole body.

Squat
Deads
Bench
BB Rows/DB Rows
and Curls in the Rack....

I posted this before looking at the lifts of others so I wouldn't taint the soup.

If I had to choose only 5, they would be:
  1. Squat
  2. Deadlift
  3. Overhead Press
  4. Bench Press
  5. Dumbbell Row

I think most of my choices are obvious. I do believe heavy dumbbell rows to be a bit underrated, and I really like them as a mass builder.

SIDE NOTE: funny stuff from Gaspers and Swede :tomato:

BTB: could you clarify which kind of row? Do you mean 1 arm bent over rows for the back, or DB rows to chest, for the shoulders?
