Here's my video from today, decided to do it all in invo8s vs my lifting shoes just because my FS is pretty low compared to my BS so I can handle the weight a little easier.

Your stance is too wide. The outside of your foot and heel are coming off the ground when coming up from the bottom. Feet should be hip-ish width, same position as the clean/snatch receiving position. Narrow the stance and your knees will line up with your feet, push through your heels and you'll feel it in your quads.

Re: Front Squat

Stance is fine. Just keep the back straight and push through the mid foot.
