Knees To Elbows

Not to be confused with "Knees to Armpits", which almost anyone can do, this movement requires a significant amount of lower abdominal strength.  Correct execution of a legit, full range of motion, rep requires actual movement of the pelvis, with some help from the lats, in order to get your knees to touch your elbows.
 
Squats and Milk

Mark Rippetoe on the efficacy of GOMAD:

"It is because over thirty years of direct observation has demonstrated to me that when trainees drink one gallon of milk added to their regular diet and train in a progressive linear fashion, they gain significant muscular bodyweight, and those that do not drink their milk, even in the presence of progressive linear training, fail to do this. They also fail to continue progressive linear training for the same length of time, because this is facilitated by the steady weight gain."
