Steve - "disagreement" and "fight" are not synonyms. Even if we grant that Mr. Cook was excluding the low bar back squat from his assertion, it's still incorrect. There's a profound effect on the diagnostic angles of the body between a front squat and a high bar back squat. The OP expressed a desire to squat and a skepticism about being able to do so safely. The video backed up his misapprehension that his knees were, by necessity, one of the joints that is "maxxed out" in the squat. Why leaving that stand unchallenged would be doing him a service I cannot say.
