That's my .02 and my assumption. Longer femurs are going to make you shoot your hips back and head forward the more straight ahead your feet are.
Thats an excellent assumption. I have extremely long legs and extremely inflexible ankles. Should I widen my stance more, or just turn out my ankles more?

Also, are you saying I should work on my OHS, before switching to BS and FS? I was under the impression that things like OHS and FS (the more form oriented ones) would be easier if I had built up a substantial amount of strength in the BS (the more basic one).

Thanks for all the help so far.
