I think there are a lot of people who think if you dont barbell back squat your beneath them but should realise a lot of the time strength is skill specific (get someone who can back squat 400lbs I bet the first time they front squat they won't be able to get more than 200lbs so is someone that front squats 200lb stronger than a 400lb back squatter?).

Don't get me wrong I love squatting/deadlifting and usually do it three times a week to failure when not injured but what people should realise is that a lot of the old timers had no choice, all they had was a barbell, dumbells, bench and maybe a rack.....
