Figure 4 - medial tracking of the knees (not staying in line with toes) causing an increased Q-angle

In this series of posts the role of the Adductor Magnus muscle during performance of the squat is examined.  Anatomy, strength, form, safety are all considered as the importance of this muscle for this lift is explained.  Not commonly thought of as playing a role in squatting, we learn that improper function of this muscle can lead to aberrant movement both during the decent or accent.

As always, you questions and comments are always welcome….also, please feel free to share the post.
