KNEE PAIN WHILE SQUATTING? [QUARANTINE PROBLEMS]
Here is one main reason why you may be having knee pain while squatting. If you don't have the ankle mobility (movement in the ankle) you need to squat properly. Here is how you can test your ankle mobility.
I am a huge advocate of mobility, especially the ankle mobility since it allows you to squat deeper without any problems.
One way of testing your ankle mobility is to have your toes a fist and a thumb's length away from the wall and trying to touch your knees to the wall without your heel popping off the ground.
If you can do this, congrats! You probably have no problem squatting.
If you can't, there are two possibilities for your restriction.
1. If you feel pinching at the front of your ankles, you have a joint restriction
*stretches and foam rolling
2. If you feel tightness in your calf, you have tissue restriction
*squeezing your talus joint back with the webbing between your thumb and your index finger and moving into dorsiflexion
Mobility is something that EVERYONE can improve, no matter what genetics, so it is important to test and work on it.
