I agree. My wide stance numbers suck, as does my wide stance depth.

I generally recommend staying with a Rippetoe-esque width until you have spent a couple years progressing. There is really no need to widen a squat until you have built some core strength, in my opinion.

This is merely my personal preference for those looking to build a strong squat.
