    I have this problem with my legs. For one thing, i'm what they call "bull legged". However, for some strange reason, my "tibia" -- the shin bone -- is rotated a bit more than normal. Meaning my toes stick outwards a bit more -- which makes my knee point a bit inwards. Now, the problem is that my knee naturally doesn't go over my toes. Does anyone else have this problem? Something about tibia torsion... if you guys really don't understand, i'll maybe get some pics...

    well, ur toes should be pointed outwards, and also, your knees should not pass your toes.

    Hmm, its hard to explain... well, it isn't really... its just my knee doesn't line up with my toes... so its hard to line them up properly during a squat.

    tize, the article fails to explore the delicacy of the knee joint, compared to the stability of the hip joint and presence of fibrocartilage in the lower back. While they might throw a large number at you, it is well possible the joints can sustain that extra force better than the knee joint can sustain the extra force it recieves with exaggerated coronal translation of the knee joint

    What uh huh? Eric has drawn his own conclusions in this article, although he does quote the researcher as saying it only 'may' benefit appropriate joint loading.

    I've sent Eric an email about this, if you are interested here it is:

    I could be well and truly wrong, but I'd like my arguments debunked if I am

    If youre gonna disagree with my view point fine, just when I call you on it, atleast say something that sounds like fact, not just jump on a bandwagon. Just because eric says its so doesnt make it so, hey, I could be making myself look like an idiot and be completly wrong, but atleast ive presented an argumented view
