THE DODO BIRD NO NO: Deep Knee Bends

NO SQUATS BEYOND 90 DEGREES AT THE KNEE!
They called these "deep knee bends" in my father's days. This exercise has been considered obsolete and absolutely contraindicated for 40 or 50 years. I thought it went the way of the Dodo Bird, so I didn't include it on the original list. But every once in a while you see someone or visit a website that still hasn't gotten the message, they bring it back from extinction and risk severe damage to the knee cartilage. DON'T DO IT!
