Greg- I have a friend who has "long femurs" in the sense that the distance from her hips to her knees is 4 cm longer than from her knees to her ankles. Apparently these two distances are supposed to be, and typically are, near equal. The disparity is quite apparent when she is squatting, deadlifting, etc. and getting below parallel has been quite a journey. A full depth OHS, however, is well out of reach at this point. When she drops any serious distance below parallel she basically dips over backwards. Even air squatting with the back as rounded as desired, she can't sit in a full ATA squat position with her feet flat on the ground, it's like her femurs shove her backwards outside of her base. Can an issue like this be addressed with serious flexibility training? If so, is it a combination of ankle and hip flexibility or possibly one more than the other? Thanks for your help!

correction: *tips over backwards. Dipping over backwards doesn't make much sense...

Dreid - Ankle flexibility and lifting shoes - the point is, her knees need to move farther forward in order for her hips to move closer to her base of support. Also, try out slightly wider foot placement with more external rotation - just make sure the knees and ankles atill align well. This will keep the hips in closer as well.

Hi Greg, Thanks a lot! We will give all of those options a shot, I really appreciate the help!
