I took the advice you guys gave me and tried squatting for the first time yesterday. I am utterly confused on the form, though; I have no idea where to put my feet, hands, or the bar (I know "on my shoulders", that's about it). Can anybody help me out?

And then start out doing reps and sets with no bar or weight. You will find with doing the proper technique, 15 reps,5 sets with no bar your first time will be taxing. The next time try just the bar with no weight and then go from there.
I did 3 sets of 8 with no weight for the 1st time in my life last week(previously was scared due to knee issues, but no pain). I was like that was not so bad. I go upstairs take a shower, come out, get dressed, take my 1st step down the stairs, and realize my legs no longer work haha. I had mild pain the day after, but two days after I was feeling the sting.
yea when i first got into doing it the first few times I would be sore for like 6 days or so, it will pass with time

I was lucky to get my trainer to show me how to do them properly. There was someone squating next to us and my trainer said, see how he is doing it? Don't do it, it is wrong. I am sure the guy heard him too lol.
My first time was without a bar and my trainer almost made me puke. 8 days and I was still sore.
