*DRIVING YOUR KNEES OUT DURING SQUATS* by @nattyknowledge ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Great post and visual here on this graphic by the Natty Professor my friend Brendon.
Contrary to belief there's a common misconception that squats are bad for your knees. I have a read of what he has to say down below.
"By driving your knees out and pushing your hips back (imagine sitting on a chair), a lot of the weights are taken OFF your knees and transferred onto your hips, a much stronger and bigger muscle.
This will also help your knees from caving in, which can cause damage to your joints.
So instead of thinking partial squats are going to save your knees (its not & it barely works your hamstrings or glutes), drive your knees out and hips back and get that ass to the grass AND keep your joints happy."
Hope that helps!

KNEES OUT! 💯
For me squats are difficult because with me the way my bodies mobility fuction is different compared to most people like if i go down to squat, my left knee won't be able to drive out because my mobility fuction is different it can only drive in so i always have to put extra focus on that when i squat to make sure im at least squatting decent.
Knees out too much will cause other problems though
Hey coach! Are there any other tips to prevent knees from caving while squatting? KNEES OUT!
Feck life saver 👌
I always thought having your knees driven out was improper form but hey great it isn't! My knees will be thanking me later now
