    They seem fine, maybe move the feet couple of inches out unless my eyes are going bad. Fine squats though keep it up.

Basically i found it seemed to help me get a better bounce and come out of the hole. It may be just pyschological, but that's what i've been doing for a while now.
    That's very interesting; clearly it's working for you. It's funny how we develop these little tricks. I'm currently trying to tense up the calf muscles in my legs before I drop in the squat - Rip suggested it to someone in a recent post as a way of stopping "knees backwards". It looks a bit silly on my videos when I review them (and it's hard to do when the weight is challenging), but it sure seems to help.

    Thanks for sharing the thought process behind that knee bounce idiosyncracy. It's picking up little details like this that make the forum so addictive...
