Getting the groove

At the advice of one of the team members (by the way who has an elite total so his advice is taken to heart) I am relearning my squat by doing a slightly above parallel box.  This is to feel more secure about sitting back, staying upright and driving my feet and knees outward to make my form spot on excellent.  I’ve squatted a certain way for so long that its going to take a few weeks at least to get a different movement pattern ingrained.

I will not be going heavy before my form is 100% ready to go, I am not a fucking moron who will hurt himself because I am rushing it, the ego has been put away and its re-learning time.
