When things go wrong with a squat...especially a heavy one...it can be complete disaster...nothing you do in a gym is more dangerous. The biggest mistake people make is is bad form with to much weight and doing the last rep...always leave 1 or 2 reps in reserve and you will recover better and avoid injury. ATG is the only way to go...once you go bellow parallel you transfer the stress off your knees to your glutes and hamstrings and develop real power and avoid knee problems (most people think the opposite is true). Also bar position...I used to like the low bar position...now I find with the high bar position I can squat much deeper and avoid the lower back stress...which is where the nastiest crippling injuries come from. I don't use one because I don't do reps I'm not sure of and use a squat safety rack...but having a spotter is not gay.
