Lifting weights is absolutely the exercise for me, at school I had always been put off by exercise simply because I did not enjoy sports that much (and particularly hated running!). But in my teenage years I discovered weightlifting and quickly became addicted to the thrill of putting on muscle and lifting heavier and heavier weight. Within lifting itself, I'd say my favorite exercise has to be the bench press. There is something just so exciting about having to lift a really heavy weight off your chest. I guess it really brings out the animal in me.
