If you are able to maintain the position for two minutes, great job! It is likely that you have developed the proper range of motion through the knee and lower extremities as well as strength in leg muscles to avoid knee pain.
If you were unable to maintain a deep squat hold for that amount of time, you could use some mobility and strength work to your legs and you are at a higher risk of developing knee pain.
How do I get better at this test?
Improving your score on this test is simple. Practice the deep squat hold and try to improve your time.
Another simple trick is to hold onto something as this can help balance you out to pull down into the position. Even if you can only hold the position for a few seconds, that’s OK! Nowhere to go but up!
Keep working on this along with the top 3 exercises for getting rid of knee pain and your knee strength and range of motion will continue to improve.
