Stacey: How low are you supposed to squat for correct form? 

Megan: There are different recommendations or forms for squatting based on training types and goals. Staying within range of motion safely for the knees would be a 90 degree squat. Going down 60 degrees would be a quarter squat and for some due to injuries or arthritis, this is a safer and less painful approach. Deep squats up to 120 degrees can be unsafe asking the joint to cause flexion beyond normal range. Safety and injury prevention aside, the deeper the squat the more muscle growth in the glutes, quads, and hamstrings. This all also depends on how much resistance (weight) is being used. Squat to the depth your body permits without injury type pain (not exercise induced pain).
