When you go deeper what do you mean by pain?

I wonder if your knees can push out wider to let your pelvis pass through your legs easier.

Do you push your gut out when you go down, that often helps me have a stable torso and keeps the back in good position.

Also, sometimes looking slightly down seems to lock me into place better.
Robert, my knees are shoved out pretty much as possible. And my gut is pushed out. I will try the looking slightly down. Thanks.
