I thought it might spark some interesting conversations if we were all brave enough to share our unpopular S&C beliefs. Let's hear all that stuff you know will get you called a troll/idiot elsewhere. I'll start with my opinions on the squat: A large percentage of average people are not physically prepared to jump into even moderately heavy squatting without risk of injury, even if form is perfect. The deadlift is a superior exercise to the squat for a majority of athletes. Most reasonably strong athletes would be better suited focusing on single leg loading, asymmetrical carries, and core stiffening rather than a big squat.
