    Go down at least 90 degrees and keep your back straight.

    Some people have told me breaking parallel hits the quads even more.

    Upper quads?
    Squats work better than supplements.

    Happens because you start to lose proper form and get all funky on the way back up.

    By back up, the author of the article means while backing up away from the "J" hooks and getting into your squat position, not while squatting down.

    That's just about the easiest part.

    I injured myself on the 'back up'. Messed up my hip.
