If full range of motion (ROM) squats aggravate your hip, don’t go as deep. Squat to a box that cuts you off an inch or two above parallel.
Box squats also help with knee pain, forcing you to sit back, keeping tension on your glutes and hamstrings, not your knees. You can use full ROM on other exercises to make up the difference for complete development.
QUICK TIP: If you suffer from knee or hip pain, use full ROM on completely stable moves, like the single-leg, leg press.
