Hi Coach,

Jason here again. I have the same type of question about squatting. When you decend into either a front or a back squat, outside of all the other mechanics, do you want to force the knees out all the way down and up? I noticed as before, "it sets the back" and abductors/glutes to contract whilte taking the pressure of the knees.

Thanks again for your insight.
