Ive heard through a couple doctors and other people that doing full squats are bad for your knees. I dont agree cus every olympic lifter does full squats and ive never heard of any that got surgery on there knee's from it. but my gf's dad did squats wrong and had to get surgery....so whats up with the whole knee thing?
We believe the stress in the knee joint is less when the joint performs a full motion, ie. a full squat. When the squat is taken only half way down and a change of direction is performed, in our opinion, this causes more stress in the joint. The muscles must work hard to stop the downward movement and make a change in direction without the help of the natural movement of the turn in the deep squat position.
