Whether it’s a longer femur, bent shin (tibial torsion), or a rotated hip socket (acetabular retroversion), your anatomy, in addition to your functional goals, should ultimately drive squat depth. So how deep or low should you squat? From an injury prevention and biomechanical perspective, there is only one thing that should matter – posterior pelvic tilt.
