Apparently, squatting below parallel is considered dangerous by some even though we were all born to squat really low along with proper bio-mechanics.
“Some reports of high injury rate may be based on biased samples. Others have attributed injuries to weight training, including the squat, which could have been caused by other factors. Injuries attributed to the squat may result not from the exercise itself, but from improper technique, pre-existing structural abnormalities, other physical activities, fatigue or excessive training.
Squats, when performed correctly and with appropriate supervision, are not only safe, but may be a significant deterrent to knee injuries.” – Strength & Conditioning Journal
Squat low folks! Full ROM and proper mechanics trumps the amount of weight loaded on the bar.
