I guess I got it all covered minus abdominal work. I tried doing weighted crunches holding a 40 pound weight beind my head. It didn't work. I got work to do.
Careful, doing dead lifts without having a strong core is begging for disaster if you move up high in weight.
Working on your core will help you better work out a number of different areas.
Try to do exercises that emphasize a large range of motion for you abs, as its easy to put the bulk of the load on a few muscles while others get neglected.
I'd probably focus on doing lots of unweighted ab exercises before using weights, but bear in mind that doing the right exercises for your abs can really negate the need to incorporate weights.
