Re: Need advise on a program i designed for my buddy

Back stretches might not be the best approach for back pain. You may be better focusing on improving back strength and hip mobility. It's really hard to say without knowing more about your exercise program.

Re: Is squat and deadlift replacable trough isolation?

I've been at it over for 20 years now. I find I get fewer aches and pains on my current strength program (low volume and relatively heavy) than I did training like a bodybuilder back in high school (high volume, moderate weight, lots of isolation).

Re: Is squat and deadlift replacable trough isolation?

Squatting builds more than just leg muscles. It also builds core strength, balance, flexibility, motor skills, etc. You won't get all that from a leg press.

Re: Full squatting just bad form?

By the way, I think most people underestimate how deep parallel really is. For example, I've met a number of lifters who think a 90-degree knee bend is parallel, when really it's more like a half squat.
