aw you got the long legs. my commiseration's, i got them too
totally see what you are saying... but now i'm curious for some front on vids
i remember kelly making that argument about the toes pointed out thing, too... i see the sense in it... but i'm also not quite sure about what he says... you definately want to push your weight on the heel / outside of your foot rather than letting your weight fall onto your arches and allowing your knees to cave in...
i'm thinking about the hips now. in particular, in order to keep the torso upright and not fall on your ass you got to get the knees out the way, yup. when you got long femurs you got more of a problem in doing that. there are two options for the knees:
1) they can come forwards more in front of the toes.
2) they can get shoved out harder to the sides.
i think the answer for most people is some combination of the above two options. making a trade-off... unfortunately we have non-ideal levers for squatting so it is harder
i'm thinking you might be able to pull your hips forwards more (so keep the torso upright in a balanced position) if you shove your knees out harder to the sides. this will place quite a stretch on your adductors to start with. it will also be very demanding on the glutes medius (the outer part of your butt / hip).
do you see how far out his knees go?? i think often people are surprised at this... but usually we see oly athletes in a 3/4 front angle so it isn't as obvious... also... the longer your femurs are the more you gotta put those knees somewhere...
