I do them occassionaly. They are good for lower back.
"A child does not learn to squat from the top down -- in other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and makes the conscious decision to stand." - Gray Cook
I used to have to do them in gym class and hated them. Something about that exercise is annoying to me, but it did seem like a good way to increase strength. Hmm... Perhaps I can lay down, have my brother put a sandbag on my back, and try to do them like that... Interesting...
Push yourself. Enjoy yourself. Be yourself.
