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?
I use a wide stance (again, I am squatting light - the max I have done is 275 x 5 and 285 x 2). No problems thus far. I actually find it easier to get out of the hole with a wide stance.
