What's about knees squats? They're good for knees pain and even better for glutes.

priyanka sharma says:

I try to do 100 squats per day ….facing knee pain now .

HealthHollow says:

I’m having pain that feels like it’s coming from UNDER my knee cap everytime I squat. I can jump around or run for 30 minutes straight without any pain at all. It’s only when I squat is when it hurts. I’ve tried adjusting my squats like you’ve said and it helps a little but it’s still painful. Not excruciating but it’s still there. Would you suggest a knee brace? Could that help? I can’t give up my exercising. I love weight training too and that’s a killer on my knee when I squat with weights.

Proud Misfit says:

Spanish squats are good too

Another video I watched said that feet out was one of the worst things you could do, but that's what helps me actually be able to do a squat.

UNsheep says:

I switched to low bar squat temporarily and eliminated other non compound leg accessories, but now I'm having arm/shoulder/forearm pain. 🤣 My knees feels better though!

Thank you. Is it ok to switch to low bar permanently because high bar or front squat still hurts but not low bar
