Clean and jerk.  Mop,  Rinse. Repeat.

It's true. I've been watching porn for years now and my right arm looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger's

He did say that weightlifting was like cumming...

If they start putting short clips on in the gym locker room I'm quitting.

I'm a competitive powerlifter, not a weightlifter, but I totally buy into this. Seeing a hot 23 year old with big blobs in a sports bra working out behind you... its better than a Red Bull enema.

So the ultimate lift needs to include snatch?

There was an active Farker years back that did indeed hold some kind of weightlifting records, it was much of his profile. He had a picture of the certificate, and pretty cool shot of a huge barbell that he bent apparently lifting all that weight.

I'm pretty old now, but 20 years ago I got into trying to win the ESPN strongest man in the world deal and worked out too much. I was squatting 550 12 times, doing sets of 50 on the universal leg sled with 900 pounds (not, obviously, going all the way down to a low butt deal). My setback came because I could never get my upper body to really cooperate, too many baseball throwing injuries to elbows and shoulders to get strong enough. I had the legs, but not the tits. I got smart and have gone from 250 to 180 as a 61 year old dude. I had major back surgery this summer on my ruptured L-4 which caused massive nerve damage and led to extreme pain and months of dilaudid and percocets (and was probably initially caused by too much lifting with the legs). I'm not addicted, thankfully, because neurontan is an amazing nerve pain reducer. But the last 6 weeks have seen me on the couch reading and watching TV. They finally let me get on my riding mower and tractor (retirement farmer gig) a week ago and the manse looks decent for the first time this summer. I don't recommend this kind of lifting for you younger farkers. Just try to stay in decent shape. I also got permission to go back to the gym, where I don't do anything impressive any more.
