In powerlifting, there is a simple trick to enable one to squat better. Simply, steal this trick by actively trying to spread the earth apart with your feet as you stand. Note how all the weight slides towards the outsides of the feet and the arch of the foot naturally builds back up. Feel the knees “track” open and the hips relax and the body drops naturally between the hips. This is “Active Standing” and, honestly, this position will do as much for most people as time in the gym. Almost."–Dan John–
