I think there is a lot more information elsewhere on the internet, that some of you guys have seen. I would like to hear some opinions on this.
all i can do is speak from personal experience, and from my interaction with other lifters. with that being said, here is my opinion. Does the traditional squat hit only the muscles below the waist... no, does it still work them more effectively than 99% of the other exercises for them... yes.
