    How to protec ya knees for new brahs

    Just thought I'd give a basic and easy to follow tip for any new brahs. Whenever you start a new leg excercise go as light as possible while still feeling some burn in the muscle after 50+ reps. Play around with your foot position until you dont aren't aware of feeling your knee at all, when your muscle is engaged if you're aware of your knees existence it means your foot position is off and unnatural. Start with what is absolutely intuitive and feels natural and then play around with it as necessary until you are only aware of the burn in your muscle. Obviously pre existing injury brahs may always feel something with certain excercises and have things they simply need to avoid, that's another case that you must decide based on your situation.

    This advice is especially applicable on squats. Disregard any video telling you that you have to squat a certain width or even depth, as you may need to work up your flexibility and otherwise hurt yourself if you go ass to grass the first time. The only universal tip is make sure your toes are pointed slightly out so your knee wont cave and tear tendons. Stay safe brahs.

    If you don't try and do 50 reps+ in one go that will help your knees. What on earth are you hoping of achieving doing that for?

    Sounds like a body pump session.

    No-one has time for that light stuff.....

    That's a lot of nonsense in one post to unpack.

    why would anyone starting lifting assume they need to protect their knees?
