Is squatting a good exercise? Should I squat past 90 degrees?
These are 2 questions I hear over and over as a clinician in the rehab setting. My answer to both questions is almost always "Yes."
I would like all of my clients and patients to have the ability to squat. It is one of the most primitive and basic motions and all of us should be able to do it. But unfortunately, we don't live in a perfect world and many people have not squatted correctly in many years; leading to knee, back, and other injuries.
