ATG is not absolutely necessary, but at least make parallel or just past.

You should probably sort out your injury if it hinders your ability to train properly. You could potentially fuck it up even more as well as blow up your knees if you keep doing half rep squats.

First, let your leg heal up then start squatting because there's really no point in training if you could only make half an effort (IMO).

This, "by a lot". Many newbies ego-lift. Can't ego-lift it will fuck your shits up.

"Thigh injury"? You mean DOMS on your quads? Wait till it subside a bit and start doing ATGs. No more 1/4 rep. Maybe mix in some high rep sets to work on your explosiveness. That's what worked for me anyways.

I'm going to put it bluntly B,

Drop the weight to 85% at the very least. I was scared that you would wreck shit up.
Also, do you stretch and warm-up before squatting? Good stretches? Like the one Louie posted some pages back?

And foamrolling/lacross your Quads? I mean, have you really really really tried to make it a point to go lower and lower in squats? Or gave up when you felt the slightest discomfort?

Because, if you keep squatting the way you squat now, you're knees are going to hate you. As those look like quarter squats, not parallel at the very least.

Curious as well, who taught you how to squat? Self-taught? Or Friend?

bnguyen, the general focus imo would be to pay attention a lot to your hip mobility

at this point, your hips are severely restricting your ability to squat lower, dropping the weights will help you go low, but if you don't have the flexibility in your hips in the first place, it won't matter how much weight you got on there, the rounding and butt wink will be there.

here's for starters:

stretch out your hip flexors
stretch out your lower back - (take something cylindrical and stick it underneath your lower back)
make sure you are able to squat down while keeping a neutral spine. (mentally cue yourself to push your tailbone back like you are sitting back on a box)

what I've learned the past few months of squatting is, everything begins at the hips. you have tight hips? everything else is going to be tight.

Myofascial release with a lacrosse ball to hit specific points on your hip flexors was fucking magical for my squats.

definately work on your mobility itll do wonders for depth.
Also, maybe try to put a 2.5lb plate under each heel when you squat so your heels are mildly elevated. It'll feel a lot more natural when you squat. Like try it out right now, squat with your heels elevated then squat with your heels down. Going down with elevated heels will be a lot easier to do with good form
