    the SQUATTING technique?

    When you're squatting, should you be on the balls of your feet or lift flat footed?

    flat footed if the weight is ont he balls then you push too far on your knees and this can be dangerous...

    Push the weight through the heels of your feet. Like Scott said if you press through ur toes meaning your putting your knees in front of your feet which is VERY dangerous. Also make sure to stick your ass out and keep your back as straight as possible.

    My girlfriend has a hard time doing squats (no weight), too. I have to stand behind her and put my hands under her armpits to give her balance. Yeah, it's kinda funny.

    Make sure she's positioning the bar correctly - i.e. low enough on the back. A few inches too high can make a big difference in the movement. Ensure its resting across the shoulders, not on the neck.

    Use a box, perhaps start without the bar to get the movement down. Emphasize hip drive out of the hole.

    it might help if she stands on a 1" board to lift the heels higher, this helps you to keep the torso more upright. or try to get her to stand wider than shoulder width with the toes pointed outwards.
