ROM in a barbell squat?

Postby Jamus » Jan 30, 2011 19:38

Hi Everyone, I haven't made too many posts here as of yet because I am new but I am just curious about some things regarding the conditioning of the legs.
Maybe Some of you who have achieved front and side splits using the methods in Stretching Scientifically can help me out.Prehaps this has been asked here before but it's a question about specifically about squats, unless I missed a post about it here on the forums somewhere or in the book. By doing squats throughout a Full range of motion in order to strenghten the legs for isometrics does it mean I am required to lower my body below my knees in a barbell squat so my butt is practically touching the floor? or is ok to lower only until my legs are parallel with the floor? I am just trying to get this straightened out before I do anything because I don't want to risk an injury to my knees. If anyone could help me out that would be awesome! thank you.
