The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Feet Pivot While Squatting

    Well lately alot of people have been commenting on my feet and how they pivot. For example, when I squat down my toes point out the lower I go, creating a "v" shape, so when I am going down it makes it unstable. Vice versa, as I go up my feet then return back to there starting posistion. Now at first this really didn't seem to be to much of a problem, but now with heavier weight I feel as I am going down I am not as stable/balanced as I should be, and if I am not balanced going down I certainly wont be balanced or in control going back up.

    So what could I do to fix this issue? I have tried leaning back more on my heals so my feet won't be able to pivot but then I feel like I will tip backwards. Anyone have any suggestions for me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Pick your big toes up in your shoes and widen your stance.

    Well I will try to pick up the toes and widen my stance. If my feet still pivot, I will send in a video. Thanks for the help.
