Robb and I are talking about 2 very different situations. I'm concerned primarily with those capable of squatting under heavy loads; Robb's article is specifically addressing significantly compromised individuals who physically CANNOT squat to full depth for reasons having little or nothing to do with inadequate flexibility. For an otherwise able-bodied individual, the stretching etc. presented in the Getting Stiff articles is a good place to start. You can also sit at the bottom of a squat holding a weight in between your legs (basically the Growler with a weight instead of using your own legs for resistance).
