There's this personal trainer walking around in my gym and it also paleo and starting strength and he's so happily surprised that I do SS as well that he sometimes give me free "lessons". Because he does SS I usually trust his advice and he usually does give good tips. However this time he gave me some squatting advice which didn't really make sense to me.

1. "Because you go so deep you have a very obvious hipdrive where you arch your back."

I thought bending was bad for your back, but arching wasn't right?

2. "stand with feet on shoulder width and point your toes forward"

Take or ignore?
