Easy 190kg parallel squat

A common question about squats is whether you should only go on parallel or do a full squat instead. A full squat with flat feet on the ground is a natural position for humans and everyone should be able to do it. If you cannot get in that full squat position, there is something wrong in terms of flexibility and you should definitely work on that position before you start using weights for a full squat workout. People usually avoid doing a full squat with heavier weights for two reasons: Power-lifting competitions - In these competitions, they go to parallel and stand up after that, instead of going for a complete rock bottom squat. This isn't a bad thing, but the problem is that people take a rule which is created for a specific competition and apply it to their training routine. Secondly, your back is not completely straight when you do a full squat, which is not the case with a parallel squat. This is somewhat debatable and I would say that a full squat is just fine if you are using light to moderate weights, but for heavy ones go for a parallel squat in order to prevent back injuries. In case you are going for athletic performance, heavy partial squats are more useful than full or even parallel squats, since you don't really go into a full squat in most sports.
