Buckling In Knees
Whenever I do deads or bent over barbell rows my knees always buckle...what should I strengthen in my legs to prevent this?

Make sure you never fully extend your knees, this will cause huge amounts of stress on them. You might also want to try using knee wraps to help support the weight yur lifting.

Stand shoulder width. Also, start doing some excercises to strengthen the adductors. You could also perform self-myofacial release along the IT band.
Do you have a problem with feet exterior rotation when doing squats?

squats are not a problem because my knees are only in that lower position for a split second, the problems is mainly when theyre in a fixed lower position for several seconds.

1. You could have a weak gluteus medius
2. You could have a tight soleus, biceps femoris or periformis

your glutes are weak or are not firing right when you squat also your calf muscles are tight which is causing your feet to rotate.
piriformis is the small muscle deep in you ass that rotates your leg outward.
biceps femoris- is one of you hamstring muscles
soleus- one of your calf muscles-commonly associated with shin splints

you could always try wrapping your knees too, for extra support.

not that you have all these imbalances...I was just using them as an example of some of the imbalances one can have.
