    So, here´s a list with the exercises I don´t know, if any of you can post a pic of how it´s done or has a usefull link, I would appreciate if you´d care to share that knowledge.

    Many thanks.

    -Rope pulls to throat
    -Barbell russian twists

    New added:

    These are basically doing the bench press on the floor. You'll need a good spotter. Simply lay down on the floor like you're on a bench (don't forget your form), have your buddy put the weight in your hands, and do bench presses. For a visual reference, http://www.weightliftingdiscussion.c...bellpress.html

    -Seated dumbbell power cleans
    Never heard of these to be completely honest. I've heard of power cleans and power cleans with dumbbells, but not while seated.

    -Rope pulls to throat
    You need cables for that, you can find cables at any gym. In this case, you'll need to hook up the rope attachment. It's just like doing tricep pulldowns, you're just using a rope instead of a metal bar. Hook the rope attachment up to the top, stand up straight, put both hands palm in on the rope, and pull down while keeping your back and head straight. They could mean the other way as well, connecting it to the bottom and pulling upwards, but the first seems the most likely.

    -Barbell russian twists
    Here's the twists: http://www.betterbodz.com/abs/russiantwist.html I imagine they're called barbell russian twists because you hold a barbell while doing them. You'll have to play around with it for a while, because I've never done those.

    Here's more on twists:

    Box Squats - standard squat with a "box" placed behind you...as you squat down, your posterior makes contact with the "box" (typically when your thighs are parallel to the floor) signalling it's time to reverse the move.

    Squats or Deadlifts?...both.

    WHat is the benefit of doing the bench press laying down on the floor, instead of laying down on a bench ?

    Well, first off, you don't need to buy a bench so there's one benefit :) Here's a guy giving his opinion that most people seem to agree with.

    http://forum.dragondoor.com/training/message/224392/

    I use a bench most of the time simply because most of the guys I go with can't spot me if I'm doing floor presses and benches are a bit safer as you actually have a place to hook it on rather than trying to throw it over your head if you lose it and your partner's not there.
