best way to do squats

|After I suffered through painful achilles tendonitis twice and then sprained my ankle, my dr. prescribed physical therapy. My PT taught me a less painful way to squat than I learned from a personal trainer. Just one change made a difference for me to be able to do squats without hurting my bad knees. She taught me to bend at my hips and reach back with my bottom as I brought my chest to my thighs. Thrusting my bottom out made all the difference. This is not mentioned in the description for squats on p. 20 of the current issue.|
