    Do not post above-parallel squats on these forums.

    Turn your toes out more and shove your knees out hard. Might not solve your depth, but will help.

    Abraham, they're 3-4 " high, so you won't get any lieniency here. During your warm-ups watch your vids to see the heaviest you can squat to just below parallel and restart from there.
    You're using knee slide to reach your current depth because you're not bent over enough. And you're lifting your head as you squat down as opposed to looked diagonally down at a spot on the ground about 4' out which isn't helping with getting more horizontal to reach depth either. Focus on fine-tuning these and the other fundamentals and you'll get to where you want to be!
