Great link! Gave me some good ideas about practical jokes!
Again though, on Question #3...How is it not a squat, if I go all the way down, do not let the weights touch the ground, and push to get my legs straight again. If I had the bar on my back and did the same movement, wouldn´t you call it a squat?
BTW, what´s your take on Qs #1 and #2?
