    what i've been taught:

    Squats:
    -slightly larger stance than shoulder width
    -let your knees go in the same direction as your toes
    -keep your toes pointed out a little bit less than 45 degrees
    -shoulders should be aligned with heels
    -keep core tight
    -chest & chin should be up
    -push with heels
    -when you go down, knees shouldn't go over your toes, or just a tiny bit, and thighs should be parallel to floor or a little below if you do ass2grass

    Legpress:
    -shoulder width apart
    -push with heels
    -hips in back of seat all the way

    please correct me if i'm wrong, i think i might be doing squats wrong and i was never too sure on legpress.... thanks :bigthumb:
