A Closer Look at the PARALLEL SQUAT
Answering the critics, once again, about this essential BFS core exercise

When BFS started 32 years ago, one of the most controversial aspects of our program was our promotion of the squat. We stood by it then as one of the best exercises for athletes, and we stand by it now.

Much of the controversy originated from the belief that squats were harmful to the knees, an idea that was introduced by Dr. Karl K. Klein when he published the results of a study in 1961 that concluded that full squats could adversely affect knee stability. In the years that followed it was shown that there were flaws in the study, and the results could not be reproduced.

To learn more about the parallel squat visit the BFS MAXCAST CHANNEL to review instructional video narrated by Dr. Greg Shepard, founder and CEO of Bigger Faster Stronger, Inc.
