Reply Caius Scipio says: September 20, 2019 at 2:25 am Those were sound squat progressions and good back cueing, but it’s perfectly fine for the knee to come forward. In most athletic movements, that has to happen. It’s fine under load as long as the whole foot remains flat. You just can’t drive the knee so far forward that you don’t use any hip engagement whatsoever.

Reply Mary Ann Brown says: September 20, 2019 at 2:54 am I can kneel on the floor on one knee, but cannot get up AT ALL without using support. I am assuming my thigh muscles are very weak. I am hoping that practicing squats will strengthen my thighs. If I am wrong do you have any suggestions?

Than your knees stays above your toes. Sorry for me terrible English.

First, thank you for everything you do! I started doing cardio exercises thanks to you and feeling much more energetic.But recently I discovered CMT (Charcot Marie Tooth) disease and I have constant pain in my legs and my stamina dropped a lot. I can only act in Vertical position until about 6-7 pm and then pain becomes severe. As I understood, only exercises can help me to stay more. People say that it's the most popular genetic disease… so If you have experience with patients that have CMT, I would be very glad if you make a video of some example exercises 🙂 Reply J R says: September 20, 2019 at 1:17 pm Squat On my Brothers!!

I'm an artist (drawing) and last year I started to have impingment in my brachial plexus because my back and shoulder muscles couldn't hold my collarbone anymore and it starts pressing my nerves. I'm working out 4 times a week and my shoulder is less uneven, but my collarbone continues to be misaligned. Could you guys do a video about this? Putting excercises to help people heal of this condition? I would be so grateful!
