I have been using the leg press machine but I would like to begin squatting. But I do not have the soleus flexibility to go down very far without lifting my heels up. So I think my choices now are:
(1) Practice squatting with no weight until I get the flexibility.
(2) Squat with weight and limited range of motion.
(3) Put some plates under my heels when squatting and continue to work on my flexibility.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
