thanks guys for the advice and tips. Really appreciate it. I will try to sit further back when i go down and really focus on driving from heels.
When you all say knees out, ur knee follows the line of ur toes yes? the idea being u dont want ur knees to buckle inwards. So could i shorten the stance up and then point the toes out a bit wider so my knees go out a bit more but a narrow the stance a couple inches? would that help be more stable with weight more positioned on the heels?
