Actually the joint is under the most pressure at 90 degrees for this exercise and many others!! If you think about it your knees are supporting the majority of your body weight at 90 degrees.

Going past 90 degrees not only relieves the stress but allows for a greater ROM and ROM is a major component of "functional" training.

Why most people don't realize this I'll never know. I know I can't squat to 90 degrees - it hurts my knees.

Is "aquatting" underwater squatting? That would be impressive. They do say to hold your breath on the way down, right? :angel_no:

Blast!!! I hate my mispellings.:wallbash:
It's the 'ol "fat finger typing" syndrome. It should say "squatting".
Thanks Elliot, I did not know what you were talking about at first. Yes, I am an idiot.:lol:
