I've done squats regularly in the past. Back, front, hack, DB, etc. My form was good, however I've never felt strong with them. I thought squats were king, but they never did much for me except make me able to do squats better.
I have short legs and a long torso for my height. It's not my imagination. People comment. I have to set the leg extension and leg curls to the smallest leg size possible, yet I am average height. (and conversely I have to set the seated presses to the biggest height for my torso)...
<-- thats a movie of me doing body weight fire squats
<- here's a movie of me doing partial-partial hulk smashes.
I feel bio-mechanically that I am much more comfortable doing deadlifts and leg presses than squats.
My goal is mainly hypertrophy (and the associated general fitness that comes with lifting weights).
Can I ditch the squats for good? Instead stick to leg presses, deadlifts, and the various assistant exercises.
From what I've read on the net so far, it seems to be alright for my goals. My days of training with goals relating to functional strength and powerlifting are definitely behind me.
