Your rotator cuff is made of 4 muscles (Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor and Subscapularis) that work to stabilise your shoulder joint. Your shoulder is a ball and socket joint made up of your arm bone (humerus) and the socket on your shoulder blade (scapular). It is the most mobile joint in the body which is why it's so important to ensure your rotator cuff muscles are strong to help prevent injury and dysfunction.
During a squat, it's important that your knees stay in line with your toes during the entire movement. You want to be cautious of your knees buckling inwards as this can potentially cause unnecessary stress on your knee joint, and also inhibits your hip movement and activation of your gluteal muscles.
