Say Goodbye To Knee Pain When Squatting Forever, Fam

To understand how to avoid it, it’s important to figure out why exactly it happens to begin with, which is actually pretty simple.  “Knee pain stems from improper form,” says Karl Smith, Director of Residential Well Living at Cortland, DHEd, noting that doing the move properly is the number one way to ensure you don’t hurt yourself in pursuit of a more perfect umm peach.  “When looking at form, make sure your feet are flat on the ground. Then, when you start the move, engage your glutes immediately by pushing them back and hinging from your hips allowing your body to go down in a smooth motion.”
