I've decided on a list of 9 exercises that I want to track my progress in, but I was wondering if there are any glaring omissions. I think together they pretty well measure total body fitness.

These aren't the only exercises that I'll do, although they constitute most of the exercises that I'll do for the next few months.
Powerlifting
Back Squat
Deadlift
Bench Press
Olympic Lifting Variations
Snatch (+Overhead Squat)
Clean to Front Squat to Jerk to Full Back Squat (what I've recently named 'everythings')
Other
Dumbbell Military Press
Weighted dip
Weighted pullups
Cable Row

I'd say Barbell Row

Yeah I was debating bent-over row and cable row, but I think for cardio I'm going to start doing rowing, so cable row will be boosted by that.
