Good to see this functional leg exercise addressed. As the trainner said, the large muscle mass used in this exercise makes it a great stimulator of testosterone and HGH. I teach this exercise in the first training session for all of my clients. I would like to add some considerations. Even with proper form, when an exerciser squats to 90 degrees, any imbalance in the thigh muscles that attach to the hip (rectus femoris, hamstrings, ITB) will cause a torque on lower back structures. So, I don't let most people go that low. The alternative is to do one leg squats. A super slow one leg suqat is super hard to do and is safe down to 90 degrees. Also, not sure about the bouncing at the bottom of the lift. I think it is asking for lowback trouble. Last point. Don't let the knees move in front of the toes. Even better is to try to maintain proper form with knees staying as close to the ankles as possible. I read a study that show increased knee forces the further the knee gets to the toes. If you are having low back or knee problems, stick with the super slow one leg squat.
