      >squats
      They're actually pretty good if you stop giving a shit about how much you can squat and focus on the technique
      >deadlifts
      I agree with you on this one, the exercise is sub-par at best and is only used for dick measuring contests between retards
      >OHP
      Almost everyone who hates OHP has no shoulders anyway, so what are they afraid of damaging?
      >bent over row
      Never tried it, so I can't say
      >bench
      It's not the worst, but a simple dumbbell press outmatches it in every way

      >135 for 5 is impressive
      Sometimes I forget thatIST is full of weak people with beginner lifts. Unless you're a woman or super manlet 135 is "I literally just started lifting 4 months ago" territory.

      curls, but this applies to most isolations in general, they are just boring and if I can avoid them in my programming I do.

        I love curls. Nothing beats the feeling of getting an insane bicep pump. I'll leave the gym on my pull-day and my biceps and forearms will be tight as fuck.

      Depends what you call "weak". People forget the shoulders are small and relatively weak muscles on their own. OHP isn't meant to be as high as your bench. Even taking 135lbs for 5 reps with clean form is fairly impressive, even if for most other muscles it's light weight.

    Squats. Deadlifts are 50/50. Some days I dread them and they feel awful. And some days they’re a lot of fun.

    anything leg related.
    It just takes too much effort to see any gain.
    after years of running, hiking, swimming, etc. I just don't see any results and that's with extreme volume.
    I'm solid as a rock and have a great foundation, but it's just so fucking tedious and I do not get any "high" from it like I do with upper body exercises
    Fucking hate leg workouts.

      Ribs Lu the most common fitness mistake bro
      Get it through your head that it does not matter how much effort you put. In fact going with too much effort will be very detrimental. You HAVE to follow an actual program to see real improvement. This means exact diet kcal macros micros every day, and exactly follow the program every day in terms of reps, %of 1RM effort and total
      Volume.
      You are not smart enough to just wing it so forget about it.

    Barbell Rows. I get lower back pain from it and my form breaks down as the weights get heavy and end up doing a retarded version of a deadlift. Switched these to straight arm pulldowns and seated row machines.

      Yeah, it's a row, not a deadlift... You're just doing them wrong.
      Lower the weight, focus on you form and contraction.

    Barbell bench press. It hated me first, I have a bad acromion that only allows me to bench reverse grip without pain; which is cool, but I need a lift off for any real weight. Nowadays I just do DB bench and treat push press as main press.

    if your proportions are a bit fucked (long femur in comparison to torso) then it is quite hard to get the form right and squat below parallel when you first start doing it. Especially if your hip flexors lack flexibility from sitting down all day which is pretty common.
    However, after you've found your foot placement you can try doing squat twice a week with very low weight followed with stretches to loosen up your hip flexors and ankles or whatever is restricting you. Most people don't have the flexibility to do squat properly when they first start.
    Or you can just do Bulgarian splits, they are just as good as barbell squat anyways.

      This, they are genuinely miserable to do. I mostly see dyels doing them sumo with chalk, straps, belt, etc. some fag was slamming two plates next to me today too. A massive conventional on a big guy can be really impressive though, and its genuinely a cool lift to watch sometimes, I will just personally never understand it.

    >fell for the squats meme
    all u need is leg press and leg curls, dont listen to retards telling u to squat n deadlift, barbell row etc. inherently there is nothing wrong with these but if u despise them then u’re more likely to skip a leg day and rush them just to get it over with when you actually do them. i dreaded doing squats and skipped a lot over the years, if i just did leg press instead which is fun i’d have made more gains,
