Default What exercises do you suck at?

We haven't done this one for a while.

Here are mine:

1. Rack pulls. I can't rack pull any more than I can pull off the floor, and it always feels an incredibly awkward exercise.

2. Two or three board press. Like rack pulls - I can handle considerably less on board presses than in a regular bench press.

3. Farmer's walk. More like Farmer's Wife walk with the weights I can use. I have enough trouble with suitcases.

1. Deadlift, I can only deadlift slightly more than I can squat.
2. Deadlift, it hurts the crap out of my back if I pull wrong.
3. Deadlift, I suck at these!!!

Bench has always been my nemesis, especially at my 1st 2 meets, but I am working on rectifying that. It's a tough one tho as I am sure my tremors make it more difficult. Learning to stay tight has been a godsend tho!

Front squats. No matter how strong my lower back is, front squats simply destroy it.

Barbell Curls. My elbows have never liked these buggers.

Pull Ups. No matter how strong I am at any bodyweight, performing a single pull up has been mission impossible.

Barbell bench press, most of all. Ever since I started.

Front squats, possibly because I hate them.

Power cleans, though this could be partly due to avoiding them, lol.

Squats - I deadlift almost 100kg more than I squat even if I work the squat more.
