I warm up with full squats. then i do parallel (90degree) squats for the rest of my sets. my knees are crap and they often "pop", so I feel safer with 90 degree squats. i go as low as I can with them. and I dont cheat on reps.

as of right now. i am only gonna do squats twice a week....mondays and wednesdays. and also gonna to do them on fridays (thats leg day). so thats three times a week (mon, wed, fri), instead of 5.

and on tues and thursdays I'm gonna do widegrip pullups instead of squats.

that way I am not overtraining any muscles.

Last time I did squats I found my poppy knees stopped popping and felt stronger. Funnily enough, although I have only started on a squat routine in the last fortnight, my aching knees have stopped aching. So keep with it Hero, you might well save yourself problems in later life by doing squats properly now.
