    Here's another great video discussing proper posture during horse-like squatting motions:

    YouTube - Inner Thigh Exercises - The Plié Squat
    (via Formosa Neijia)

    ... make sure to listen to the audio track as some of the video examples are of things not to do.

    I'm just willing to give up on that and think there's many different ways to do "squats"... I don't think that any one way is the answer for everyone.

    I'm pretty sure I know why I don't do squats with my toes pointed outwards and I've never had any knee pain. But, right now, my stance work is of minimal importance.

    His recommendations here for how to move under load are very much in line with correct body mechanics as understood by every system of physical culture I've ever practiced.

    I think one problem is many people can't even tell the difference between spinal and hip flexion/extension, from a proprioceptive standpoint.
    Just go watch an average ab class.
    The "Cook hip lift" can help in this regard, imo.

    I agree, and even go so far as to endorse the full Bret Contreras glute progression up to the Barbell Hip Thrust:

    My only issue with MaBu is the knee adduction that some schools advocate.

    I'm glad this thread popped up again. Since I have reasonably healthy knees, hips and a back again, I gotta see just how poorly I can do these sequences again.
