Thats when you get hurt and it also hurts your gains.
my shoulders do some weird shit too. it clicks when i do flies. i don't go too heavy with flies because of that. but everything else i think i'm doing okay. i work out alone so i don't push as hard as if i had someone there with me. i don't wanna injure myself without having a spot around lol

Pretty much. You end up using some of your strength to stabilize the weight more with dumbells. Making it harder to lift the same amount of weight.

Same goes for the machines. It's much easier to do leg presses on a sled than doing squats with a barbell. If I use the sled I pull nearly every 45 plate in the gym to use (540lbs) leaving noone else any weights to use. Squating it's more around 275.

3 days a week, 2 days with cardio, and hit the slopes as often I can. Broke my leg playing football(soccer) late May last year.

3x5rep mostly on the weightlifting. Squatting 220lbs for traning, 200lbs for bench, 220lbs for deadlifts as well. My back has been troubling me since I was 13-14...

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.

you guys ever get it when you guys go off jumps and your knees give out and you can't handle the g-force? i was determined to work on my squats so i could hold that off the force haha

If squats hurt your knees (I can sympathize) try doing a roman chair/wall sit: How To: Wall-Sit - YouTube

Or dumbbell lunges: Dumbbell Lunge - YouTube

my workout for legs is:

squats,
lunges,
inner thigh raises? does that make sense?
and then the machine where you're laying down on your back and you push up with your legs
then finished off with calf raises

my legs are shaking by the end of the workout. hardest time walking down stairs right after. haha
