Mechanics of an OL Squat

Should the OL squat begin with movemet at the hips such as a sitting back moting similar to what is done in PL, or should it begin at the knee?

It’s more of a knee break. Try sitting down between your legs.

EXACTLY!!

When OL squatting, you are squatting between your legs not over them.
