Default Common Squat Mistake - Elbows Flaring up

One of the most common squat flaws I see are "elbows flaring up." I was helping a lifter this morning, so I thought I would share this.

Quote:
When the elbows are up, the chest is not out, the back is not tight, and you'll tend to lean forward when squatting.
