    She travels all over the world and teaches her art in many different countries. As far as I know, both bench press and squarts are not part of her teaching program.

    I don't understand the context of your post in reply to my post.

    Her skill has nothing to do with needing to bench press or squat. She would be stronger if she did but it's not necessary for her sport.

    For some sport, function training is more important than strength training. It's just like sandbags on the legs will not help running.

    Assistance exercises. Many renowned powerlifting programs prescribe them. Identify a weakness, for instance the lower back (and by extension the hamstrings) in the squat, and target it with exercises that isolate that area to improve your overall performance. Weighted back extensions and reverse hypers. Or front squats to load the anterior chain more if your flexors and quads are the weak link. Exercises that are removed from the actual movements performed in competitions by varying degrees. By your guy's recycled logic those are all just gimmicks. I wonder how the estiminable Mr. Simmons would feel about that.

    You don't need certifications in kinestesiology to know that doing one legged squats balanced on a bosu ball while juggling kettlebells on fire is retarded. But it is pure intellectual laziness to paint everything in broad stroke knee jerk powerlifting forum regurgitations when common sense will suffice.

    There is a reason they are called assistance exercises dude.
    The core principles of strength training have always been:
    Compound lifts for overall general strength.
    Assistence work to develop that "parts you miss".
    Even powerlifters do assistance work.

    you do come across as an a$$ most of the time, you not getting any at home?

    many programs do use assistance exercises (mostly geared lifters as you know being a competitive powerlifter and all), alot dont though many work record holding powerlifters just do the big three lifts....so to recap some get strong just doing the big three, some get strong doing the big three and assistance exercises yet no one gets strong without doing the big three, riddle me that muppet
