Squats

Post by nicksale37 » Wed Apr 02, 2008 2:56 pm

what is the best way to do squats. Do them with the feet flat and toes pointing forward or toes pointing outwards and knees pointing outwards on tip toes?

I sometimes practice squatting with feet straight parallel and go down with the back straight (no forward lean) like sitting on an invisible chair.

Whichever way causes your joints the least amount of discomfort.

I agree with Glen. Pay attention to the signals your body sends you.

Make sure your knees don't point over your feet - This will save your knees

I agree with all of you. Look at how Charles atlas did them, emulate it, and if they cause you problems, adjust the way you do them until you find a way that doesn't bother you. Be careful to not be overzealous in the beginning. Some things you don't want to learn the hard way.
