Do your knees hurt on squats?
Sometimes when squatting a common tendency are for the knees to “Break” first and push too far forward.
On a squat the knees can go past the toes. It’s a big myth that the knees can’t pass the toes on a squat.
However the issue is more when the knees go forward, not it they go forward.
I have found for a lot of women it’s easier to think about sitting back and breaking “hips first” and then “knees second”.
If the knees go too far forward at the right time during a squat this could cause you pain.
Watch this video where I explain in more detail.
When you squat try to think about breaking the hips first and then the knees, This could help your squat and prevent knee pain.
Give it a try and let me know how you find it.
