    my knee caps hurt. kind of towards the top of the knee and it hurts hwen i bend it or walk. not so bad that i cant walk but its a discomfort. my squat form is correct though. i dont let my knees go past my toes. i sit backwards like im told to do so. i dont go heavy anywys. does anyone else get thsi?

    I just started doing squats myself, and like you I had slight pain in my knee caps. But today I decided to use a slightly wider stance and I did not end up with any kneecap pain.
