Honestly man I was trying to force my self to Squat wide, flat footed, and such which has been wrecking my hips a little more and more every session. The past 8 months it had gotten extreme to the point where I was literally taking serious painkillers, alcohol and massive amounts of antiinflammatories orally, creams and injectables just to get through Squat days. I was being extremely foolish but was in a roll hitting 50 plus PRs every time I stepped on the platform.
But, I realized I was suffering in all other areas of my life. Work, school, family, relationships all started to suffer. I knew I was messing up bad. It got to the point where I decided I was done. Completely wanted nothing yo do with powerlifting any more. But, luckily Amit Sapir spent weeks talking me through it, face timing me, and any thing he could think to help keep me from quitting. We took 2 weeks completly off from squatting and then Amit had me literally adjust every single aspect of my squatting. Foot angle, foot width, shoes, knee movement, hip movement, bar placement, torso, where I wear my belt, EVERYTHING and we finally came up with what you see here allowing me to Squat 100% painfree and even seemingly stronger after a few months or working it.
Had I returned back to my old style I would be laid up back exactly where I was barely able to walk. I was trying to force my body to do something it just didn't want to do.
