Watch the good oly lifters, they go ***-to-grass.

If you can't squat to parallel yet, then keep practicing
Yep...this. I'm currently retooling my "maxes" and only counting ATG squats. It's looking like it will only take 6 months to reach my old max but rather than having someone watching to ensure I break parallel I just go until my hamstrings make contact with my calves. Then go a little deeper.
