fabio is off to a bad start
Default Form problem on LB Squat


this is my first post so I apologize if this is the wrong forum to ask.

I have anterior pelvic tilt and I'm fixing it right now with daily foam rolling and stretching. Everything I've read says that I should never stretch my hamstrings because they are already longer due to APT but here is my problem:

I can't really squat down properly, I have to point my feet out a lot wider than the 30 rippetoe advises in starting strength. I have read the book, watched countless videos (also the SS DVD) but I can't get it right.

I suspect my hamstrings to be the culprit, but I can't really stretch them because of my anterior pelvic tilt problem.

What should I do? I'm at a loss here and have no idea where to go or what to do.

I'll try to get a video to show you guys what I mean but I hope you understand it so you could give me a couple of pointers right away.

Edit: Can it and/or be limited hip mobility?
