FWIW - I can get my lady to do most any movement if it's in a circuit or pairing of some kind. She LOVES EDT training. Even heavy sandbags and rocks. I couldn't get her to do a standard strength session.
I've found that goblet squats and kettlebell or dumbbell swings are the keys to the kingdom when teaching ladies to squat and deadlift.
