    Default Squats and deadlifts?

    Because it involves using a lot of muscles, not just the legs.

    besides lifting sports, they are just two of many exercises one can do effectively to improve their strength with regard to back and lower body.

    They are the best barbell exercises ever.
    If you can do them properly, most haven't

    Probably doesn't need to, in regards to this subject weight lifting for an athlete is to expose/improve the raw material to enable them to get the most out of their playing and training.

    I include myself in regards to squatting, dead lifting is quite simple though the only trouble is if you can't squat right you shouldn't go after the dead.

    I do think squats are better than deadlifts.

    if I had my time again, I would have done neither. that is just my preference. I believe I would have been a better athlete by doing other exercises.

    Do them for 6-12 months, squat and pull a few plates, and by then you will have formed your own opinion.
