    arent you supposed to keep your knees behind your toes? i keep seeing a bunch of videos with people bending their knees to they go forward beyond their toes...:ugh:

    depends on the squat... an olympic/full squat will typically put the knees past the toes. a powerlifter/boxsquat will typically sit back much farther and therefore their knees dont go past the toes.

    It depends on the relative length of your limb and body segments. I'm pretty sure my knees go beyond my toes, but in order to get to parallel and stay upright, that's what I need to do.

    Interesting, I always thought they aren't. My left knee got all screwed when I went past the toes, I stopped doing it and haven't had trouble since then.
