I was reading one article about the back squat that you were interviewed in, I forget the date on it but I read it yesterday. The author was against the back squat. Anyway, you mentioned that it was mostly a lower back exercise and that one of the people you were training quit doing the back squat for a number of weeks, worked on his lower back strength, then went back to the back squat and was 50 lbs. stronger.
I am very interested to hear what you were training him with for lower back. I did your test standing 6 inch from the wall and squatted down, I did not hit the wall so according to this I am built to squat or atleast not NOT built to squat. I feel that compared to all of my other lifts, I am a weak squatter, but if I just need to build my lower back then I'm all ears.
Would this not apply if I have deadlifted 500 but haven't squatted 275?
