This has probably been said, so excuse any redundant feedback...

From my research above parallel squats do indeed place greater stress on the knees.

Narrow stance...perfectly fine. I squat very narrow. The main issue with squats in general is folks not getting their knees out and in alignment with their toes. Whatever the stance, open your knees appropriately.



Too often narrow stance squats are knees in. This limits depth, amplifying stress upon the knees and back...
