I was reading on olympus.net (great informational site BTW) about squatting with flat heel shoes on - so today before my 5x5 of front squats, I look down at my feet and notice I have a considerable heel on my x-trainers. So I did what any sane person would do; took off my shoes and squatted in my socks! I felt a lot more balanced, especially when I hit rock bottom. Granted I should probably invest in a pair of flat heeled sneaks, but this seemed to do the trick in the meantime.
Anyone else have this same experience?
