In the last video Dr. Ryan Debell and myself talked about modifying deadlift variations to decrease stress on the spine. In this video Dr. Ryan Debell and myself go over the same simple concept in the squat. With this knowledge in mind we can easily modify the squat for people with either lower back pain or knee pain so they can squat without trouble.
So to recap. If I have knee pain what modifications can I use to decrease pain during squats?
If I have lower back pain what modifications can I use to decrease pain during squats
