Default Squats above parallel

T NATION | Are You Injured Keep Lifting

Quote:
Knee pain is most commonly associated with deep knee bends. The fix for this is simple exercises with a shallow knee bend. The first choice for me is always something that hits the same muscle group, if possible. In this case, it's the quads.

3. Go Above Parallel on the Box
The box should be used to keep depth in check. Put your ego on the shelf about hitting depth until your knees feel better. Typically 2-4 inches above parallel is enough to reduce pain drastically.
