my squats are terrible. i try not to fuck up my knee joints by not letting my knee go past my toes too far. i dread leg days. i hurt for daysssss
I wouldn't worry so much about knees vs toes relation. That depends on your natural bone/muscle structure. Focus on straight back and squeezing glutes when you are halfway up. Also check your stance and listen to your knees. There should be a stance where your knee caps don't grind.
