I always wanted to do something like SL or SS, making use of the big compound lifts, but I was worried about hurting myself - particularly my knees - squatting. I work out alone, etc.
What I've learned now through playing squash is that I think I have issues with the muscles in the lower body firing - particularly my glutes. If I try to stand up out of a chair with my thighs parallel to the floor and my shins vertical, I can't do it. I wind up pulling my feet back more 'under' my weight and rock forward (using my calves definitely and quads, I think). There's no engagement in the glute area, nor do I notice any when I'm lunging on the squash court...
