I’ve always had an easier time squatting than deadlifting. I’ve been deadlifting since I started lifitng, but I feel like I’ve only recently started to kinda get it. Squats seem intuitive to me.
But then again, since the squat is more complex to others, wouldn’t it be better to have them build up their squat? In most beginners, their deadlift is almost always higher than their deadlift even if they’re brand new.
I could be biased against deadlifts, but if I weren’t competing I’d prolly only do trap bar and RDL
