The back squat, like the bench press, is often one of the main exercises within most strength programs. Many argue that the squat is the all around best exercise due to its ability to develop high levels of strength and muscular size, and when done for high reps can work the cardiovascular system quite nicely.
“Because I don’t have the time” may seem like the quick and easy answer. And although there is truth in this, it actually goes a lot deeper than just simply not having the time. Yes, like many people, I have a busy life. Between my day job, training/coaching, writing, and spending quality time with family, I like many others am often short on time.
This however, is not the main reason I don’t train for several hours each day, and quite honestly I don’t think most should.
