What are your favorite and worst exercises?

What are your favorite and worst gym exercises?
 
I love lat pull-downs
 
I hate overhead press - the movement just doesn't feel right!
 
Hence the decent back and crap delts!

    Favourite is the lat pull-down, closely followed by hang cleans to front squat.

    I hate back squats.

    favourite deadlifts, dips
     
    worst wide grip chins and overhead press (ongoing problems with right shoulder so they both always feel niggly and leave quite a few muscles in spasm)

    I never use my indicators, I don't like people knowing what I'm up to

    seated DB military press, i would press all day if could... best was 65kg dumbbells
     
    I hate machine preacher curls, my long arms mean i use a pitiful weight and the movement just feels awkward.
    James even mocked me on how little i used compared to him and he lifts like a starved 6 year old

    Favourite are deads by a long way. Least favourite Squats because I get crippling Doms for days after. Also have physical impediment in my shoulders so pressing is strong but lat pull down etc clicks and cracks.

    Favourite = which ever exercise is progressing the best. Atm it's push press and jerks. Last week it snatch and front squat.

    Worst = If I don't like it I just stop doing it so don't really have a worst I don't think.

    Body Weight - 83kg 
    Bench - 145kg
    Squat - 190kg
    Clean & Jerk - 129kg
    Snatch - 98kg

    ATM I hate Front squats... something to do with taking 40secs rest between sets just ruins an exercise I used to like.
     
    As these are soooo horrible right now, I love everything else as it means I am not Front Squatting

    Starting to seriously love deads and bench.
     
    Dislike kettlebell swings. Mostly because I just look rediculous doing it.

    Favourite: DB bench
    Least favourite: rowing machine

    I train at home at the moment so don't do either of those regularly. Out of what I do do, my favourite is Olympic ring dips and least favourite is kettlebell swings.
