I've become too conditioned to the advice to avoid "tips and tricks" articles.

If I'd read that article 6 months ago, having been at it only 3 months at the time, it just would have confused me more and I probably would have changed my exercises yet again, then wondered, after reading yet another article, and changing yet again, why I could not make progress.

Another thing I've become conditioned to is the oft-asked question here, "what is your goal?" Bodybuilding or Strength? The article makes no mention of the target audience, or how the old vs new advice is pitched at body builders or strength trainers.

You wouldn't change exercises, have you read it at all? And if you want to injure yourself or loose time you can do it...

Because there is no point in mentioning it... They are for both audiences...

Nice advices!
What do you do with your knees when you squat?

The advice is pretty good, but I have to wonder, who does it help and who is it aimed at?

I'm glad to see more of that kind of advice out there, though, and the author has a pretty good track record of writing good material.

another point of view for knees forward while squatting. It did help me to get more clear in my head the trade off of straitgher shins comes from hips back and thus more forward lean. I still haven't settled on a precise squat movement. Although, since I am also doing front squats, that could be my back-more-vertical variety, and the back squat, more a power lifter movement.

overall, much better than most general exrcise articles out there on www
