Reading a page in a book and thought I would share it,

“The body functions as a whole, not a sum of its parts. There is no valid reason to give each muscle group equal training in number of exercises, frequency, volume, or intensity. Muscles that participate most in the performance of the sport need the most attention. Power Zone: Hips, Legs, Trunk, Back Sport specific movements, (lunges, step ups, leg curls, calf raises, sit ups, lat pulls, rowing) should be trained more often Supporting muscle groups like the chest shoulders and arms can be trained once or twice per week without reducing the effctiveness of the workout.”

I assume that his neglect of squat is because the book is directed towards Major League Caliber Athletes so its assumed they are performed?
