When you fail to reach 90 degrees, you’re not only cheating yourself but putting yourself at a higher risk of injury. Squatting to parallel puts the posterior chain in your body into play. This creates a balancing force and takes pressure off your tendons. Hitting at least 90 degrees is the bare minimum. If that’s all you can do, great, but try to break to parallel. Going slightly past parallel gives your legs just that little extra. Plus if you’re into powerlifting, past parallel is a requirement.
