Alright it's been said numerous times at elitefts. and this site. Chuck Taylor's Converse for squatting. Flat shoe, you can push your feet to the side, all that kinda stuff. Mmm I never squatted with those, but I did squat with basicallythe same kinda shoe, just not that name brand. Flat shoe all that kinda stuff. Now I was just fooling around and I started to squat with my adidas shoes..I think they are cross-trainers, so yeah it has that slight heal and all. For me I can actually squat more and feel more stable and all that squatting with them. Anyone else have this?. How come I have this?..Oh and like I didnt squat or anything for about a month cause I had a sprained back..so when I got back into training I started with those shoes and I was just squatting weights much easier. Can anyone explain the basis to this?
