What are some possible fixes for improving squat depth. I have a buddy who has had several knee operations in the past…including ACL repair twice on the same leg. He has trouble getting into the bottom of a squat (hip crease below knee) and complains of knee pain about at the point of hitting parallel. Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated?
What does his squat mechanics look like compared to ideal squat form?
With several knee operations he has tolerance for silliness or less than ideal mechanics.
He may not be able to buffer deviations in technique that he may have been able to buffer in the past.
What has he done to address the knee?
up/down stream of the knee to feed slack to the knee?
