What's your favorite exercise?

This is a great topic. What is the most fun exercise for you to do, regardless of its overall value?

I went with strongman-type stuff - swinging hammers, flipping tires, carrying weights (farmer's walks, sandbag carries, etc.), sled dragging and prowler pushing type stuff.

I like this kind of stuff because it doesn't require a lot of technical skill or instruction. They're hard to mess up. They are largely just sheer brutal strength training with minimal strength. Strap the sled onto your belt and walk or run. Push the prowler. Flip the tire over however you can. Swing the hammer. Get that weight from point A to point B and then bring it back. They aren't difficult, just hard.

How about you? Respond in the comments, or join the fun at EXRX's forums.
