Questionable Exercises

The BFS signature exercises are the Box Squat and the Dead Lift. As far I am concerned booth exercises have questionable value. The box squat results in very heavy loading of the spine. This is especially harmful in the young growing population, although it is not an exercise I would recommend for any age group. The dead is another risky exercise. First it is a slow movement. They recommend a trap bar which actually enables the athlete to lift heavier without as close a regard to technique. The dead lift is inappropriate for high population and I seldom use with mature athletes.
