Nice topic. Whenever I put a plate in my heels it certainly feels easier to hit ATG and I feel it in the quads more, or at least used to. But then I began really watching videos of squat form of guys that know what they're doing and the issue stopped. All of the following squat barefoot/flat sole/vibrams I'm pretty sure none of them have an elevated heel. I'll post vids of their squats and quad development, as pictures/videos will be more exciting than words



Josh Hyaduck (Uses Vibrams)
(He's not big on taking videos, he used to swear by the hack squat/reverse hack squat and usually uses those for Sheiko):


Most recent pics (20+ weeks out from WNBF World's):

189.8 lbs


185.6 lbs

(View his old thread for quad improvements, have come a LONG WAY in this offseason, he said he never used to take squats serious/rarely squatted and used machines, so that contributed a lot to the development)



Brett Freeman: About 5 Weeks out from the INBF Hercules (I think he squats in chucks)

The vid that helped me the most was Rip's Hip Drive Vid:




Since using that for around a month, my squat form is basically a spitting image of RJ's
