Ever since my training "enlightenment" about nine months ago (Read: I started reading t-mag), I have been under the impression that the uber-exercise was the squat.
Especially with articles like "The Howl: You Gotta' Squat!" (www.t-mag.com/html/30howl.html), it seemed like the squat was THE measure of whether someone actually knew WTF they were doing when it came to weight training. You know: someone says, "I can bench this much and curl so-and-so..." "Yeah, but how much can you squat?"
But now as I've started to read the t-mag forums regularly (wow, what a great place!), I'm noticing that everyone is like deadlift-crazy or something.
Are deadlifts the new squat or what?... Did I miss something?
