    Hi Coaches,
    I had a bit of pain while breaking parallel during my last workout. I put on my knee sleeves after the first set, and the pain went away.
    However, can you spot some form errors that might be causing this? Link squat form check - YouTube
    I might be leaning over a bit less than I was earlier, that was mainly because I found that right after the bounce, I used to get stuck with a very low back angle and that felt very scary. This does happen in the last rep in this video as well. I am not sure if this is due to fatigue (since it only happens at the end of a set) or due to a form error.

    Thanks for all your help, and have a happy new year 2021

    You have some knee slide as you hit the bottom of the squat. As you said, you need to keep the correct back angle and bend over - otherwise you'll knee slide more.

    I think your feet need to be a half inch wider, but I'm not positive.
