I am sooooooooooooooo sick of hearing people say, "you shouldn't let your knees go over your toes!" and even MORE sick of hearing "squating below parallel is bad for your knees."
This is doctor squats site for crying out loud and i know there are several members here who know these warnings are bull.
Unfortunately i can't find any articles to prove it! every one stops at parallel, no one goes beyond parallel in studys, and then they say the deeper you go the more stress you put on the knee! OF COURSE IT DOES YOU STOPED AT 90 degrees! however mecanically speeking once you go past 90 you get more compressive forces acting on the knees from the musculature which is a good thing!
help me out here guys, i want enough evidence, objective, scientific, biomecanical evidance to convince anyone (including people who should already know this stuff like professors).
