squats

Can't do squats, it's as simple as that. Just can't get the technique right and i end up sore as f*@$. So i need good alternative for squats. At the moment i'm doing leg press, straight leg deadlift and standing calf raises for leg work. However, it just feels to easy and i don't feel like i've done enough. Any suggestions?

    U using an empty bar? if not then start. keep attempting until ur form is correct.add weight gradually so u dont find it too hard. U need practise first few sessions, then u should b fine.

    You will get sore because the exercise is new to you.

    Stick with light weights untill you get the form right and then increase the weight gradually.

    If you are capable of squatting and you choose not to, for whatever reason, then you are simply cheating yourself out of much of your best gains and potential progress. If you can do them, then imo you MUST do them.
