    Even though exercises such as the squat can involve the muscles of more than one joint, the involvement is not the same and will not produce the results needed by beginners

    Well, that kinda has some truth to it. If you are just doing pussy quarter squats, I would imagine the hammies dont get involved too much.

    I wish I had started out w/ squats, deadlifts, and GHRs instead of curls, extensions, and leg presses.

    I am curious as to what people think about the concept as a whole. Is it right, or is it wrong, or somewhere in between? Why?

    it really depends on how youre squatting. at one time i got up to a 400lbs squat olympic style which was basically straight quad, no sit back or anything. if youre sitting back into the squat powerlifting style your whole posterior chain gets absolutely trashed. I am not so sure that there is much applicable difference to dynamic and static lower back strength especially for a beginner and especially for weightlifting.
