Sam,
Awesome squat video, very inspirational! Do you bring your raw stance in closer compared to your geared stance? Also, what kind of shoes do you prefer to squat in raw?

Thanks,
Josh


Thanks Josh. My geared stance was much wider than my raw stance. Raw i keep my heels just about under my shoulders. Someone once told me Coan talked about something called a "hip lock," where put your feet in the position where ur hips "lock" in the hole and wont let u drop below parallel. Its different for everyone, and this is where mine is. I dont know if its true, but it sounds good. I should ask him...

I wear the standard chucks for back squatting and oly weightlifting shoes for front squats. Ive thought about trying the Safe lifting boots, but i dont wanna fork out the coin. (someone gave me my weightlifting shoes and my chucks, thats the only reason i have them haha)
