I didn't squat two days in a row. I squated hard Saturday, then did an explosive/speed workout that included a couple sets of squats this morning. I also did some sprinting and lunges Tuesday at PT

I'm sure you're right about my hip mobility. It's never been an issue, where as my knees have given me lots of trouble, and received the bulk of my time spent on mobility. I think the sprints and ab training have led to some tightness I haven't had before, now that I think about it.

BTB, my stance is about 6-8" wider on each side than shoulder width. Definitely not a powerlifting stance, but it gives me a good balance of back and leg focus.
