If you can forgive a "stupidisch" question from someone new to OLY lifts.
I´ve been lifting heavy stuff in my training before. But it kind of stayed at the "lifting heavy stuff" level so I´ve never really been to particular with technique.
Too many times I find myself correcting and changing my squat stance. With my new found knowledge I now know the squat stance is foundational to the olympic lifts (excuse the ripoff
I´m rambling again... Sorry about that.
To make it short. I can´t find my optimal squat stance so I´m having trouble learning to transition to the receiving position.
From what I understand the heels should be under the hips and the toes turned out to about shoulder width. However this feels very narrow from what I´m used to.
Is this because I´m also new to the olympic style of squatting (I´m trying to unlearn the butt back powerlifting style)?
Another option I could think about is that I´m pretty tall and got long legs so maybe my toes should be pointed more out or the stance made a bit wider?
As I´m having trouble finding coaching I´m probably going to have to solve it on my own.
So are there some good methods to finding your optimal squat stance?
How did you go about finding it?
