Knee pain really just depends on how you were squatting previously. If you go from squatting high to squatting super deep and going really heavy your tendons will hurt for a bit, if you get past that your joints will get stronger and it wont hurt anymore. If you start squatting really deep from the get go with lighter weights then your tendons will have built up the strength over time and you would have avoided the mess entirely (unless your form sucks).
It’s not like OP was quarter squatting, just looked like he was about an inch, maybe two, high.[/quote]
Actually, knee pain depends on how you’re built. Aside from random tendonitis in my left knee I never had problems when squatting to parallel or just a bit higher. When I switched to atg I started getting really bad knee pain within a few weeks and shortly after tore two chunks off my meniscus in my right knee. Not blaming deep squats entirely, but they were definitely a major contributing factor.
Op, you’re a strong kid and those squats were plenty deep. Props.[/quote]
haha the original post says depends on how you sqautted PREVIOUSLY then you said he was wrong after stating that AFTER SWITCHING from parallell to ATG as having not been doing ATG THIS WHOLE TIME and you use that to claim hes wrong? Im not saying either is right im saying your logical reasoning and use of examples is highly flawed.
