I am relatively tall with long legs. However, my femur is actually pretty short in relation to my overall leg length which seems to make ATG with a moderate stance pretty tough.
If i am using very strict form-chest out, head up, abs tight, torso upright- but can only go to parallel or a bit lower will i be ok from a safety standpoint regarding the knees and assuming my patella is not way foreward over my toes.
Also, will it still be the effective exercise that squats are without ATG? I know i will be missing out on some glute activation (i have step ups and dead variations for that) but hopefully not much else. Thanks all.
