A few months back, I made a thread about how I could bench more than I could squat. I got a lot of good advice in that thread, the best advice was to squat more (just do squats) and to start low and work on repetitions. That has all really helped me and now I'm happy to say that I can definitely squat more than I can bench. One thing that I learned while squatting is that taking a very wide stance and pointing my feet outwards really reduced the amount of back and knee discomfort. I also started lowering with a very upright posture. It seemed to work great, but then I watched a video about the Rippetoe squat, where he recommends the same wide stance and outward pointing feet, but that instead of an upright posture, lean forward a bit and look at the floor. This seemed to emphasize using your ass and more than anything, as he stressed in the video. My Problem though is that when I get up to higher weight, leaning forward causes me to fall forward a bit and i have to correct my position. What's the issue here? Is the Rippetoe squat bogus? As of now, It decreases my squat rather than increase.
