Okay so I believe I have pretty good form while doing my squats but... I'm always hearing the phrase "ass to grass"... Is squatting lower better for a better booty?

Best way to do squats in perfect form and low is with a stability ball. It will assist you in keeping your form and going "ass to grass" so check it out and see what you think of it

I would say yea the lower the better. I use weights also when I do them. Also when I do them I hold for 2 seconds It doesn't sound like it hurts but it does lol

Well yes and no, the ankle shouldn't be smaller than 90° !!! This is very important bc of your knees! If you want a better butt, use weight, do a squat workout but 100-180 "normal" squats a day are enough ! I did it and i'm happy with the result...pictures

Lina is correct, and the lower the better as long as you are maintaining good form.

No problem. 'Its all about the ass', 'squat zone' are both good ones

Yeah everyone is spot on here lower the better as long as you have good form, if you are struggling to get lower you can grab a weight hold it out in front of you and use it as a counter weight

Actually I was a little wrong I have been enlightened and here is a study on why people squat differently http://themovementfix.com/the-best-kept-secret-why-people-have-to-squat-differently/# now don't get me wrong one should try and go to their full range of motion but arse tk grass squat may be anatomically impossible for a particular person same as narrow and wide squat its a great little article.

Atg isn't needed in squats, as long as you hit parallel or below you are working the whole muscle group so why stress your knees more than you need to.
