Squats Hurt Your Knees?
It’s tough for me to truly believe someone when they say they don’t do squats because it hurts their knees. Sure, I believe your knees hurt, but I don’t believe you are doing squats properly.
It’s similar to when someone boasts to me that they benched 500 or ran a 4.2 40 in high school, as if to make-up for the fact that they do not look like they do a whole lot of nothing currently .
Really. Did you?
Yeah, and I just decided to forego steak for tofu for the rest of my life.
Now, if their form is spot-on and they actually have some underlying knee issues going on, so be it, but…this isn’t often the case.
Typically, the form could use a few adjustments, along with mobilizing a couple key areas. Luckily, by making those adjustments, you can get on the road to squatting pain-free.
In my latest contribution to STACK.com, I delve into what these form tweaks are, as well as 2 drills that you can incorporate in your workouts to make yourself a squatting machine!
For whatever reason, the videos weren’t compatible with the article when it went live, so I posted both of them below. Sorry about that.
