Fav Exercises for Each Body Part

Hey guys just wondering what everyone’s favourite exercises are for each bodypart. Here are some of my favs.

Traps = DB Shrugs
Shoulders = DB Military Press
Chest = Incline DB Press
Back = Deadlifts / T-Bar Row
Biceps = Reverse Grip EZ Bar Curl
Triceps = EZ Bar Skull Crushers
Abs = Medicine Ball Slams (Logsplitters)
Legs = Front Squat / Romanian DL
Calves = Calf Raise on Leg Press Machine.

Traps = Power cleans
Shoulders = Military presses (front) rows (rear)
Chest = Dips
Back = Deadlifts
Biceps = Chins
Triceps = Dips
Abs = Deadlifts
Legs = Was back squats but since my two knee surgeries I focus on single leg work so for now it’s bulgarian split squats with DB’s
Calves = rarely train them but one leg standaing calf raises have proven to be useful

agreed, except i’d say close grip bench for triceps since i already do dips for the major pec muscle, also i’d do it at an incline to get a secondary effect on the minor pec which misses out on all the other lifts. and donkey calf raises for that extra stretch for calves
