I have been doing front squats for a while and i have noticed that as my hip flexibility has increased that i have been able to go lower, which has led me to the following questions.
1) Lately, with my current stance i have had my toes engage at the bottom of the lift. i haven't felt anything like i am going up on the balls of my feet, but they engage nonetheless. is that bad/something that should be avoided? When i widen my stance, it fixes it and keeps the weight so that i can actually lift my toes up while squating.
2) what is your take on olympic shoes to solve this problem? would that make it bad on the knees or would it just allow me to keep more pressur over my heals?
