I started adding a new stretch this week. The stretch entails standing in your desired squat stance with you back against a wall. Then squat down, then hold the position, squat down more each time and hold it each position. I am also using a 5 gallon bucket as a guide. My flexibility has been bad, but Thursday of this week I managed to sit all the way down on the bucket and hold the position. This was a major break through for me. I plan on next speed squat day to start following the suggestion described in the Elite FTS “Dynamic Squat Manual” for hip flexibility problems. They recommend starting with a box height 2 inches above parallel and drop it an inch after the first four sets. Then the next week start with the height you finish with the week before and drop an inch the last four sets. This is to be done for three consecutive weeks.
