Paul: “And so then he said, bro, when will I ever need to squat that deep in real life?” Eric: “No kidding?!”

Nope.

This was a question myself and I’m sure other CrossFit Coaches found themselves answering pretty regularly in the early days of CrossFit. Conventional knowledge has always told the public that squatting below parallel was bad for their knees and then CrossFit came along and told everyone to squat bellow parallel. In the beginning I didn’t even question it because I knew from experience that it worked and over time I learned why it was totally healthy and absolutely necessary to a functional human being but it’s always good to have a refresher.

So check it out.
