Rest day reading: How to Train the Squat for CrossFit

"As far as technique goes: I am strongly of the opinion that CrossFitters should squat like weightlifters – that is to say, a vertical torso, relatively narrow stance, and deep. A wide stance, powerlifting squat simply does not carry over to CrossFit, primarily for the same reasons it does not carry over to weightlifting. Squatting movements as executed in CrossFit (snatches, cleans, thrusters, etc) require a very upright torso, and thus the squat should be trained to develop this position." - by Jacob Tsypkin
