I dont like squating, so Im avoiding doing squats. However I enjoy deadlifting and Im doing them every day. A different variation each day. Is it really necessary to squat actually if you can do sumo instead? Or is there something special happening while doing the squat, something unique, that the deadlift doesnt give you?
Squatting isolates the quadriceps and glutei. Strong thighs are useful if you're looking to achieve explosive power from the legs.
Deadlifting not only works out quadriceps and glutei, but also strengthens calves, hamstrings, abdominal muscles, and the trapezius.
I think it's a good balance to not only work out with deadlift but get individualized muscle groups in there. This will allow you to target areas of your body better, allowing for more vigorous workout without tiring your whole body.
Does this make sense?
