    Clean would be a good one and might encourage more people to actually do it.

    I would say OverHead Military - aside from the Clean, that's the most indicative of overall body strength.

    Agreed. LOTS of overall core stability and full upper-body stabilizers involved in making this one work.

    strict standing overhead. Clean has very little to do with strength in regards to the average gym goer. Meaning someone can put alot of weight by teaching you proper form on the clean, but that is not really going to happen with the other lifters. Before i am attacked a clean is one of the best exercises going.

    Clean and Press over Military, easily, especially if you're doing half reps, which I see a lot. C and P includes full body dynamic power and strength. Military is just a strength movement, with no lower body included, and no explosiveness included.

    You love him for what? Not making sense? How about concentration curls, they're pretty money.

    I like clean and presses but IMO its not a good exercise to push your 1RM or encourage newbs to do so.

    If its not done correctly then you can really expose your lower back and open up the door to some serious injurys.

    That being said - my vote for Standing Overhead Presses FTW

    Please explain how I didn't make sense. You can military press from the seated or standing position... and he loves me because i'm lovable.
