Favourte Exercise for each part???
 
If you could only do one exercise for each body part, what would it be? When I say favourite, I mean which one do you feel gives you the most bang for your buck if you could only use that one exercise for that target area.

I.E. For main back my favourite is Bent over rows but I feel I get a better workout from deadlifts so the answer I would give is deads.

Here are the categories I was hoping you would answer for.

Chest
Shoulders
Back
Glutes
Hamstrings
Quads
Calves
Neck
Forearms
Biceps
Triceps

If you would just take a minute to list your #1 for each I would really appreciate it.

Chest - flat barbell bench press
Shoulders - standing OH barbell press
Back - chinups
Glutes - walking lunges
Hamstrings - deadlifts
Quads - squats
Calves - dragging my tire
Neck - holding up my bald head
Forearms - chinups
Biceps - barbell curl
Triceps - I would say flat barbell bench press (heavy pressing in general) seems to help my triceps the most, but since I picked that for chest, I will say...pushdown variations, my favorite right now is rope pressdowns with a splay

Chest: Flat Bench (weighted dips and guillotine presses come in close second)
Shoulders: OH Press (incline bench close, but it is mainly front delt)
Back: Incline T-Bar Rows (for thickness), Lat Pull or Rack Chins (for width)
Glutes: Squat
Hamstrings: SLDL (I can't do them, so I use a myriad of prone, standing, and seated leg curls and GHRs)
Quads: Front Squat
Calves: Leg Press Calf Raises, DC style
Neck: Never worked it, just grows
Forearms: Deadlifts (I can't do them, so I use isolation exercises)
Biceps: Standing Barbell Curls
Triceps: Close Grip Bench Press (all three heads), Skull Crushers to nose (long head), Rope Splay Pushdowns (lateral/medial heads)
