Squat: How to Descend.. Knees first or hips first?
In most of the Sqat how-to's it is said that you have to start the descend with your hips. But in Stuart Mc Brown's book, he instructs to "start by bending your knees for a few inches fistst and then your hips will automatically bend. Do not bend at your hips first"
if you flex the hip first u will do a good morning. Depending on the variation of squat ur performing, knee flex ion will occur at various degrees. If you do a narrow squat knee flexion occurs first with increasing hip flex ion to the bottom.

The break is at the hips and it is BACK. Like you are sitting down yes but think about sitting down on a toilet (sexy yes I know) if is down and BACK. YOU push your knees apart on the descent so you are sitting down and back between them.
