    Generally, it's low bar squatters that only go to parallel, as it's powerlifters trying to move the most weight possible. Calm down.

    Parallel if you're squatting low bar.

    Below parallel if you're squatting high bar.

    Next time, tell the bodybuilder guy to mind his own business. If he's the kind of douche that walks around giving unsolicited advice and/or assistance to the chicks, then tell him to fuck off.





    Bah, commercial gyms.

    Yeah, sure. I'll dissect your stupidass post.

    Almost anybody can perform a full squat. If you can't, well, you just need to develop the mobility and flexibility in the legs and hips, barring the fact that you have a major disability in those areas.

    Even then, Lamar Gant has scoliosis and he was able to squat over 600 lbs.

    Save this ego lifting bullshit for the poseurs bodybuilding forums.

    That's not how you do a proper squat. Knees extend over the toes.

    No, you don't tuck your butt in either.

    Oh really? So I can just get under the bar and twitch my knees (That's about 1% ROM, right?), and I'm well on my way to developing huge quads and ass, huh?

    If by "full squat" you mean squat as low as they can go with good form, then yes.

    If by "full squat" you mean perform a proper bellow-parallel squat, then no.

    For general strength development, you should go as far down as you can go while maintaining proper form and having no pain.

    Skip the squat and add in another bench and curl day. You can do quarter hand-assisted leg presses to help build your tri's.

    It actually feels more natural for me to squat a2g so that's what I do.

    Some say 90 degree but my coaches always screams LOWER LOWER LOWER. They won't be happy until my ass is all the way to the ground.

    As for the knees, just make sure you're on your heels. As long as your knee is not in front of ur toes, you ought to be fine.
