  • MD 101: Steve Kuclo On Squats


  • #2
    Well, what can say? Steve's got it right. Nobody is build the same way. When I do squats, I focus on form instead of weight. I like to go deep 'ass to the grass'. But while I get older (47), the knees getting a bit sensitive due to to my profession. The so called 'mile age'.
    But to me it will always be 'the mother of all exercises'.

      For me i have to have a wide stance when i squat or i feel it too much in my back, also the stance allows me to go super low to the ground.

        It seems like none of the pros today squat with a close stance like platz and demayo did and both obviously have unbeatable leg development when ever I see the pros of today they squat wide it's definitely just ass and hamstrings when you squat that wide I don't care what kind of mind to muscle connection you have

          pros and cons with both wide and narrow foot stance when squatting...I rather leave the narrow stance for leg presses

            What would be the cons with a more narrow stance if your a bodybuilder? Youll hit more quads and less glutes and hamstrings ? If your squatting for quad development and can't squat with a more narrow stance that means you have to keep practicing, stretching etc... Till you can get it, now if you can't squat narrow people just squat super wide cause its super comfortable I think its lazyness

              cons squatting with a narrow stance are (1) more stress on the knees, (2) more stress on the lower back, (3) shorter ROM, and (4) less stability

                That all depends on the individual and what there body can tolerate

                  sure...I do agree narrow stance hits more of the quads, but I dont think you cant get the same type of result from using narrrow stance on leg press machine where you dont risk lower back or knee injury, dont have to worry so much about balance and can strictly focus on hammering outer quads

                    Platz did ass to the grass with a narrow stance so there goes ROM for you, if your knees hurt your forms most likely off, no one masters a technique over night it takes time and effort m before you just oh shit Ill just squat wide it feels better and I'm a bitch, just think platz demayo best legs ever both squat close

                      you really think that knee pain from squatting too narrow is simply a matter of mastering proper technique?

                          It is more of a matter of "torque" than learning technique...the closer your feet when sqyatting the more torque on the knees...Some folks might have more resistant ligaments and tendons and can handle more torque, but that does not change basic mechanics...For example, some people to a degree can do hack squats pushing through their toes and not feel any discomfort, while some others need to always push through the ball of their feet or they immediatelly feel knee pain...not about technique at all
