im worried without a suit and the wide stance i will run into problems getting out of the hole. also ive heard of knee problems from this.

any opinions?
Knee problems are a concern on any heavy squats so I wouldn't worry too much about it unless your 300+ on your squats. I got sore knees when doing madcows as I was regularly above 300.

As for getting out of the hole without a suit, again wouldn't concern yourself too much unless your squatting serious weight. Start light and build up slowly you shouldn't have too many issues.

However open to anyone who say's otherwise.
