    Pretty sure most Sports Trainers have their Athletes Squaring. I recognise the issue of Spinal loading but I remember a Study (in the 80s) found the Vertebrae actually adapt to the increase in loading.

    All my years of heavy compounds and bone etc thickening have saved me from serious injury in things like being hit by a Car lol.

    Necessity depends on your goals.
    Overall, I'd say you can get by without them but they're damn effective and hard to beat.

    What about the Core? Just holding that weight up there is great for the Core like no other exercise .... as long as harm isn't caused.
