This is another thing I disagree with, it should be physically impossible to do a full squat without your knees going past your toes.

Well.... not everyone does full squats and it's not really necessary either.

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.

Necessary? No. More benificial? Yes. I see no reason not to do full squats unless you want to someday compete in powerlifitng.

The only problem I see with my form is my toes aren't facing outwards..

I don't do squats or dead lifts. They kick ass because they hit a ton of power muscles etc etc etc BUT! and I know people are going to argue with me to the death on this but they will damage and destroy your body. I only have one set of bones, tendons, ligaments, vertebrae etc and I won't trade them instead of adding 15minutes to each workout to hit these muscles in a safer way.

Running will destroy your body a lot faster than lifting. As will kickboxing(which is probably the worst culprit as far as knee damage goes).

Also how do you replicate squats and deadlifts? With Machines? They are not "safer".

I'd also love to know where this idea that Deads and squats are so bad came from(not just targetting you Xeb, loads of people think it) yet bench press is the safest thing on the planet. Powerlifters seem to end up with way more injuries from benching than anyhting else.

I'd love to but I don't have the capabilities (no digital camera, limited cell phone capabilities, no camcorder).

I'm going to just deal with it and keep squatting until something serious happens. It's just really awkward..

My thighs/hamstrings/glutes will start off sore the day after my leg workout but will calm down and heal like normal but as my core is healing, my knees flare up and get worst.

I wouldn't keep doing something that was hurting me.

Could it be fluid build up or some shit? Maybe it's something a doctor or physio needs to look at.
