It has always been said that locking the knees in any type of squat or press exercise is harmful ... but is this statement true?

👨🏼*🔬Evidence

❕The knees 🦴 are prepared to lock effectively, the muscle that surrounds them is enough to protect them 🛡.

❕With the knee lock you can increase your maximum load in the exercises 🦿.

❕If you feel discomfort when locking your knees, it is an indication that even without locking them the weight you are using is harmful ☠️.

💡Tip

❕The knee must be vertically aligned with the hip-ankle line for an efficient lockdown 👌🏻.
