DL
I've got a 33.5 inch inseam and I wear petite tops, so I'm born to deadlift. I'm closing in on 350#, so that's cool too.

JERKS
Probably because I so enjoy being one, I love doing them too. Push jerks, split jerks, clean and jerks. I freakin LOVE JERKS. (Present husband excepted... only husband. I meant only husband!)

Cleaning
Although my husband may say otherwise until I correct him, I've gotten pretty good at cleaning. In the weightroom. I'm inconsistent with more than 135#, BUT I power cleaned 160 and I have a witness, but I haven't been able to repeat the task.

Me and my big mouth. Hubby heard me typing, I read him what I typed and now I've got to clear space so there's wood visible on my desk. See what you made me do.

Dammit Performance Menuers!

Steve,
Thanks for that. The AB workouts continue to kick my ass on a regular basis.

Jamila,
If you're closing in on 350# in the DL, I've got to get lifting. I'm stuck at 265# and got 270# once. I need to lift heavier.

Is a 33.5 in. inseam long, and therefore are you tall?

Incline DB Press - No reason other than I'm pretty good at them and I'm stronger on the incline than flat, go figure.

weighted chinups - Never really done these before the last few months, a lot of fun, weighted pullups though are not as much fun for me.

walking barbell lunge - I haven't done these recently but I used to love loading a bar up with 225 and get to walking.

Bulgarian split squats - This is the exercise I love hating, I love doing these when my reps are relatively low, I HATE doing these for 10 reps+ (but I still gut it out, though my quads are screaming WHY!!!)

back squat - Always liked them though for the first few years I discovered I was doing them all wrong. "um yeah I love doing partials....d'oh"

cleans - After Dan John showed me how to do these the correct way rather than my taught myself out of magazines way I started liking these a lot more.

It's so great to be applauded for something so meaningful!

Thanks. I'm 5'9" and built like a stork... or a ballerina. Long legs, long arms and short little torso. If I was leg proportional I'd be at least 6 feet. If I was upper body proportional I'd probably be about 5'3"!

I love to deadlift. Especially since I go to a shi-shi gym where they have a platform and bumpers with the gym's logo on them. (CLEARLY they had no idea what real platform usage entails!) So I get on it with my lifting boots and my dark glasses, SANDISK-not-ipod in my ears and my elitefts t-shirt that says "I'm training Don't talk to me" and start grunting, sweating and doing beastly O-lifting workouts and scaring all the spandex cardio bunnies away.

They removed the 30" jump box because I was one of 2 people who actually used it for not sitting on. So now they've got an adjustable 18"... Long way to say, I love working the posterior chain and it's all helped my DL.

About the only things I'd add to shaf's list...skin the cats on rings and HSPU/walking on hands. Good stuff there.

You guys are all lame. My top lifts as follows:

1. Supinating dumbbell spider curl
2. Alternating twisting gravity boot crunches
3. Decline bench unilateral tricep extensions (kettlebell)

What the hell is a deadlift anyway?
