Can you pick your top ten exercises? Here is my list

This is going to be a serious challenge, especially considering we use, what some 400 some exercises.  Top 10?  Really? 


Oh come on, this will be fun.  It might take some thought, but you already know a few on the top of your head.  Now, by top ten, I am not necessarily saying the 10 easiest or the 10 hardest. Nor am I saying the 10 most effective or 10 best core exercises.  It will be a combination of aspects that you yourself must decide upon.  In fact, give us a reason or two about your most favorites. 

If you can’t come up with a complete top ten, just think of a few you would put at the very top and think about why.  Below, I compiled two lists actually.  One list is for bodyweight only exercises with my reasons why. Then I have my top ten with equipment.
