excellent avatar; good advice.

this is something I had to change, too. I was doing squats and my knee kept hurting (though I blame it on poor footwork in Muay Thai--working on that). I changed form so my knees don't go past my toes and it's lightened up.

I won't mention that it was my girlfriend who corrected me.
