I guess I just don't understand the reasoning. I don't know what's so massively different from a casual trainee and a BB or PL when they're under the bar in the gym.
Less weight? Maybe. More of a emphasis on a certain muscle? Perhaps.
Is that really a reason not to do one of the most effective exercises for mass? Are my biological and physiological needs so different from Joe Average who doesn't compete? Do we respond that differently to exercise? There was a reason that pretty much every drug-free trainee in the history of strength and physique training has done Squats. There was a reason Squats became popular from when Milo Steinborn first got the (admittedly pretty dangerous and retarded) idea to up-end a barbell and squat with it. There was a reason that the popularity of Squats persisted.
The reason is that it works. Period.
