Essential? None are 'essential'. I haven't done a bench press since 1998. I rarely do chinups or dips with extra weight. And curls?

But don't forget the snatch.

I know that you've got cleans in there, but nothing gets the core cooking like some heavy front squats

OHS is a must as are kettlebell swings IMO.

Lunge (all directions, diagonal, side, behind crossovers, uphill, OH with bar, 1 arm with DB OH)

Lunge is more day to day functional...we need more 1 legged strength..as that is how we move...plus in all directions will certainly address any imbalances and weaknesses you may have.

Man, just look at the last week plus on the main site all the great vids of different lifts. Pure gold.

Makes me think I should really be doing them each day as they come out...
