    I have legs that curve out at the knee, a condition common to korean guys around my age (our mothers used to carry us on their backs.. our legs would wrap around our mother's back and end up slightly curved)

    As a result, if my feet are parallel, I feel that my feet are pointing inwards. If my feet are at a 45 degree angle, it feels perfectly natural.

    I'm just wondering how you guys place your feet when squatting... I usually do the 45 degree angle route, but I finished up my 5x5 with a parallel stance

    you point your toes so that your knee tracks directly over them. This will be where you are the most powerful.

    ok, that's my 45 degree foot stance.

    It's the most comfortable for me too... I usually do them just a hair wider than shoulder-width.
