I just think in general the expectations are lower because of the community base, no offense meant, certainly. It's just a younger, less experienced community.

Please correct me if I am off the mark on any of these points.
an interesting point that I had not considered. The emphasis in SL is getting squats, primarily, to 1.5 of body weight. At that point, from what I read, you are encouraged to move to other strength routines.
