    Conditioning for what? It's pobably great for people who just want to keep their heart beating longer. And this guy http://www.cbass.com/ advocates it for fat loss.

    It only count's if you are either walking fast enough to sweat or carrying a 100lb pack or doing hills or a combo of the three. Unlesss you are rehabing from ilness or injury (after combined chemical therapy my routine consisted of walking for as long as I could or climbing stairs slowly).

    I'm also guessing your technique is off if it's hurting your knees. I have bad knees and squatting sometimes makes them feel better.

    Define 'back moving'. And how deep you go depends on your flexibility, but it's preferable to at least go until your femurs (not your thighs) are at 90%. Get someone to coach you through the movement ASAP.

    Not sure what you mean by the back moving. The hips should flex somewhat. So the back will move from vertical to tilted slightly. But the curve should stay the same all the way through. For depth this is ideal just ignore that board under his heels, the pad on the bar, the belt (you don't need that), the massive weight (we all started light) and his ridiculously wide grip.

    but anything below parallel is good. If you aren't going below parallel you're not really squatting and it could be why it's making your knees sore.
