      Squat to Stand Tips From Eric Cressey - YouTube

      This is one of my favorites because you are stretching the right muscles as well as grooving a proper squat pattern.

          You never want to raise your heals, everything should be tight and feet should be gripping the floor when you squat, don't teach your body to raise it's heals. That being said.

          Foam roll, Legs swings, hamstring stretches, pigeon yoga pose, anything that will increase your hip flexor flexibility, static squats with out rounding out your back, they key is to keep your arch and not let your tail bone tuck under you. Hold a barbell if you can above your head arms our and locked and grip tight, now squat down while still holding the bar above your head. This makes your body stay tight and upright because it has to work to not drop the bar. I do this as a warm up for my squats, it keeps everything in good form, but legs swings and lunges with one legs out behind me helped me the most, really loosened up my hamstrings. I would get into a lunge, stick on leg out far behind me and bend down so my shoulder touches my inner leg.
