Re: Squat Depth

Alexandar's pic is more to the point of my question. I was thinking that getting full range of motion was to go completely down. When I do this, I believe I am keeping the arch in my back, but I think I am too vertical in the bottom of the squat. If you are too vertical, then this takes the hamstrings out of the exercise (to a large degree). So, is there a point where you need to stop your descent so that you keep your back angle and hamstring activation? I am now thinking the answer is yes.
