  1. Those were sound squat progressions and good back cueing, but it’s perfectly fine for the knee to come forward. In most athletic movements, that has to happen. It’s fine under load as long as the whole foot remains flat. You just can’t drive the knee so far forward that you don’t use any hip engagement whatsoever.

  2. now for the weights I had a question. Is there a proper way to hold them while doing the squats since you guys were holding the kettle bell a certain way. Please let me know because I am a true believer in having proper form no matter what.

  3. I can kneel on the floor on one knee, but cannot get up AT ALL without using support. I am assuming my thigh muscles are very weak. I am hoping that practicing squats will strengthen my thighs. If I am wrong do you have any suggestions?

  4. This is creepy. Just adopted this form when doing squats to night before seeing your video…

    You doing a video on pull-ups next?

  5. Advantages of having 2 kids at home.
    I piggyback the first one and hold the other one like the Lion King Opening pose.
    And then do squats with it.

  6. Sir i am from indian , i have been following your channel from last 7 months or so you both are awesome and doing a great job.
    I am 24 years old.
    I have a minor posterior bulge in l4-l5 and mild disc bulge in l5-s1.
    Gradually i have reduced the pain going down to my feet now i am far better but the tingling in the fingers it comes back every now and then can you please suggest something.

  7. To start a good squat, use your kitchen counter.
    Place your toes exactly under the counter doors. Than your knees stays above your toes.
    Sorry for me terrible English.

  8. can you do a video on the hex bar, hugely underrated especially for novice or average gym goers. best of squat and deadlift with low risk of injury

  9. Hello Bob and Brad! First, thank you for everything you do! I started doing cardio exercises thanks to you and feeling much more energetic.
    But recently I discovered CMT (Charcot Marie Tooth) disease and I have constant pain in my legs and my stamina dropped a lot. I can only act in Vertical position until about 6-7 pm and then pain becomes severe. As I understood, only exercises can help me to stay more. People say that it's the most popular genetic disease… so If you have experience with patients that have CMT, I would be very glad if you make a video of some example exercises 🙂

  10. While being disabled I also am stronger than most people. Before surgeries I was a beast. pt doesn't address the whole body and it's bullshit because of lawsuits I suppose. I have learned a lot from Bob and Brad . TY

  11. I love squats but ever since I started doing them, my hip flexors have been in severe PAIN, and I'm only 18 years old. Please help ):

  12. Bob and Brad, I noticed that a lot of people have this problem shown on 4:08

    I have this problem too! I'm an artist (drawing) and last year I started to have impingment in my brachial plexus because my back and shoulder muscles couldn't hold my collarbone anymore and it starts pressing my nerves. I'm working out 4 times a week and my shoulder is less uneven, but my collarbone continues to be misaligned. Could you guys do a video about this? Putting excercises to help people heal of this condition? I would be so grateful! Best wishes for you guys, you are the best fisio on internet!!!

  13. Why Bob? Why? You guys crack me up! But seriously, great video! Was looking to incorporate squats into my habits and needed tips on the best form. #score!
