Re: Knee/form question regarding pistols, front squats and back squats.
Hey, thanks for all the replies. I don't have internet at home so just getting back on here.
I am female and I was wondering if this was going to come into play. I used to wrestle in high school and some in college and heard a lot from the female basketball players about ACL tears and dominant quad strength in women. Will crossfit alone not balance this out for me if I drop load amounts and focus on form? Or should I do like you mentioned and maybe put in some extra hamstring work (we all want bigger, more shapely hamstrings anyway, but who has the time/energy?)? Is a weak 'posterior chain' (as you called it) potentially why my deadlift is so horrible (besides not having proper form coaching)? What is a "Q angle"? Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the links, I'll check them out tonight later. Holding the bottom position does seem like it would help with both flexibility and balance.
