    One of the things we occasionally see is the tendency to leave the knees in slight flexion at the top of the squat. I think this probably comes from either the incorrect impression that locking out the knees is bad for the joints, or that it's better to remain in some flexion to more fully work the quads. Either way, it has to be fixed.

    The failure to lock the knees at the commencement and completion of a squat is considered a missed attempt.
