Get Deeper (and Stronger) with Past-Parallel Squats

Email sent: Nov 12, 2013 10:04 am


At the gym, grab a trainer to learn how to deep squat safely.

Deep (aka past-parallel) squats sound downright scary — won’t the pressure hurt knees? What about backs? But with the right preparation and flexibility, past-90-degree squats can burn more calories, use more muscles, and build a better booty than squatting parallel. Take time to chat with a trainer or physical therapist before getting started (especially if you have a history of joint problems), since this exercise can do more harm than good if done improperly.
