Default I Don't Like Deadlifts and Squats

A rant. please excuse my obnoxiousness...

I am really growing tired of lifters saying they don't like deadlifts and squats. I don't like them either. I also don't like hard work, taxes or taking out the garbage.

Truth be told I like to sit on my ass.

I don't like squats and deadlifts. They are mentally and physically difficult. I do them anyway because this is weight training and they are the two top lifts.

If I want to hit a baseball I can choose a bat or a twig. If I want to enter a drag race I can use a dragster or a bicycle. And if I want to get big and strong I can use squats and deadlifts or leg curls and pull downs.

In all of the above examples, each will "functionally" do the job. But some are more efficient then others.

Please, just gird up your testicles and do the damn lifts.
