Sorry I missed this. Been down with food poisoning. Overall your squat form looks excellent. You are a freak in that you can squat wide and deep.

What aspect is feeling heavy?

My best advice is this...place your feet on the floor in a position like you were about to jump, and use this width for your squat.

A slightly more narrow stance will allow you to use the quads a bit more. Build up that quad strength. It will serve you well.

When you squat, think 2 things from the hole:

1) Ass up.
2) Hips forward.

These 2 movements are the squat, and the more you master them the stronger you get.

From the hole focus on lifting your butt up, and then complete the lift by pushing your hips forward.

Things will feel heavy from time to time. That's ok. Focus on that slight progression and keep as much of a natural feeling stance as possible. Don't force a width...find a natural one for you.

If you ever have any questions that are missed in your log, please feel free to post them on the open forum. We all want to see you progress as fast as possible.
