    One set vs many sets

    I think I've burned out my quads and hips because I hardly feel them working when I squat. Now, I feel the knees working far too much. I've been squatting 3 times per week; Friday I went pretty...

    I find squats to be very difficult

    Squats are hard to do if form is adhered to. I try my darndest to keep my knees in so they aren't out further than my toes. This results in having my torso at about a 45 degree angle to the floor. ...
