    I don't know if it puts me in heaven, but the most taxing would have to be a deadlift as it really gets the heart racing.

    Squats, I think its the look of the bar flexing as you get into position to start the pumps. You can just see your body screaming out, get this off me, and in your mind youre saying nah...you can do this.

    So it's the heart racing effect caused by a taxing execise that does it for you LJ?

    I'm with Fadi - I'm lovin' power cleans..
    Couple of reps, and you can definitely feel the total body workout it's giving you.

    I'm only new to it, so the weight is still pretty low - but I find it the most challenging and rewarding exercise.. It's not just about pulling or pushing as hard as you can, you need get your technique down for this one..

    Fadi.

    I would have to say that I enjoy squats the most but I think deadlifts put the most stress on my body because it feels as if my heart is about to pound out of my chest.

    I have never tried powercleans as I am worried I might do it with poor form or drop the bar on myself making me look like a fool at the gym.

    Its funny. At my gym I see hardly anyone squat (only 2 people so far), noone deadlifting and noone doing powercleans.

It would be appreciated if you can also tell us why your chosen movement instills a deep satisfaction within you.

    For me, its the power clean movement because it epitomises the perfect marriage of strength and speed, which in a blink of an eye go to produce the ultimate baby that is called explosive power.

    I thought about the same thing. There's Mr. King eyeing that exhausted and weight laden flexed bar...as he approaches it stealthily and with a sudden move, he takes it upon his massive shoulders and takes lordship over it. He is the Master...and that poor bar knows it!

    What a befitting name; Mr. King!
