The safest way to squat

Updated: Jul 25, 2022

If you’re a beginner the safest way to squat is to minimise pushing your knees out past your toes.

This reduces the shearing force on the knees. You do this by thinking more about the hips go back rather than the knees going down, which will keep the shin more vertical.

It’s wise to respect your knees. You’ll miss them when they’re gone. This doesn’t mean you should never put your knees over your toes, breakdancers do it all the time and it’s not because they’re doing it wrong. You just need to build up to it, if that’s your goal. Otherwise, if you just want to build stronger legs you’re best to avoid injuring them.
