I think it depends in how you do them. If you squat too low, you can really **** your knees up with all the pressure. That's why I struggled so much on squats.
actually its if you are not going low enough, if you stop above 90 you are putting all the pressure on your knees instead of waist. If you stop at 90 you knees are the weakest at a 90 degree angle. If you go past that, then all the weight shifts to your waist. Also when coming up people sometimes shake their knees in and out.
Also most people don't know how to squat, they have their knees go over the toes more times then not. Also you knees should line up with you feet.
The half squat is actually more likely to do damage to the knees than the full squat. Hes just a guy trying to get some exposure and is a joke. If this guy has a degree he needs to return it. Be hard to find any good S/C coach not advocating squats in some form
I've been back in the gym. I usually go 6'1" 195. As of last week I was 196ish.
I eat an outstanding amount, but I always have.
The past few days I have been munching, hard, but nothing too extraordinary.
I'm 208 pounds! I was 202 as of yesterday morning. So even saying I'm less than 208, say 204, wtf!
Not really sure what's going on.
I used to sway anywhere from 5-10 pounds every week depending on the amount of food/cardio i took part in that week. I'm kind of locked in between 185-190 now but I swayed alot moreso when I was first starting at the gym. 13 is a little extreme though, maybe you're scale is a little tweaked.
