Yes, it's actually torture but it's supposed to improve your hip flexibility.

You can find more about it on this link
http://antranik.org/the-30-minutes-a-day-squat-challenge/ (recommended by ps1)

and read more posts regarding hip flexibility on this thread

For me, it doesn't affect my knees much but my main pain is from the thighs

Really it's effective... I am not doing 30 minutes for sure but I am doing 5-9 minutes nearly every day and I can say I really felt a difference espicially with my high kicks.. I would recommend trying it
