    Its not about "digging it" or not..it's about working hard, making sacrifices and then coming out bigger, stronger and tougher on the other side.

    Squats, deadlift and bench - if you are serious about weightraining, these are essential. Learn to dig squats.
    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.
    One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.
    The other, of course, involves orcs.
    -John Rogers

    you didnt say why you dont like squats. if we recommend front squats, hack squats, or even leg press, you may not like those either. but they are similar.

    there is no real similar exercise to the squat. If your looking for a replacement, there is none though some will say maybe leg press; but its not the same or similar in my opinion.

    I actually like doing squats, cause i think its the best for upper leg growth. When you get up really high in weight then it kind of sucks because its scary if you dont have a spotter.

    Yup. If you don't make sacrifices, work hard and go through thousands of uncomfortable moments that you don't "dig", what can you achieve in bodybuilding exactly?

    ^^^ That's important. How are you going to know you're gonna dig any thigh work? Do what you want, but compromise based on enjoyment factor and you'll compromise results too.

    This is as gay as hell, but before each set of squats (when I did 'em, I do fronts now and for some reason I don't say it) I psyched up with the words "suck it up, buttercup" repeated again and again to myself.

    I never psych up on anything else beyond gathering my mental focus. But I was just telling myself exactly what I needed to do.

    If you don't want to do the squat, or any variation of the squat (bad move in my humble opinion), but you still want a full body "core muscle" exercise, then the deadlift is the best answer. If, however, you're looking for an exercise that primarily works the quads, then the leg press is decent, as are lunges.

    If you don't have a good reason for not doing them, suck it up and just do them.

    They are not required, but they will definitely help speed your overall development.

    There is NO exercise that will mimick squats.

    You can do other things to try and develop your lower body and core. Some have already been mentioned:

    Leg Press
    Hack Squats
    Lunges
    Step Ups
    etc....

    what's wrong w/ leg press?

    although, I doubt if you can't commit to squats, which in my opinion are easier to get a good workout than w/ the leg press, that leg press will not do you a damned bit of good.

    If you can do deads, then the squats become easy. Dont think if op does not like squats; then deads are out of question as squat are so much easier than dead to me in my opinion...
