I can't do squats like the one pictured. Or rather, I can, but my heels come off the floor. I wonder where the problem is--calf flexibility? Hip mobility? Any thoughts on how to get my heels down?

I will be glad to share my thoughts on her DVDs that I am getting through interlibrary loan. Hopefully they will be in by the weekend.

As a rep counter and form fanatic, I need specifics. I see that expecting moms should squat 3 times a day. I was thinking 10 x day would be good for me (not expecting but pelvic floor inadequacies).

Also, how long to stay in the squat position? Rise to a full stand then squat again?

I can get my heels flat but my spine is not as upright as in the picture shown. I feel like my spine is neutral but I'm leaning forward a little so that I don't tip backwards.

Miscellaneous aside: I've been on hold for 20 minutes now re my free ballet slipper order, supposedly I am number one in line. Maybe they just don't have reps at night?

Sorry to veer off topic, but I need to know more about this free ballet slipper order.

Katy Bowman is great! I have some of her DVDs. I like them. Each DVD has 5 exercises as well as tips for addressing the particular condition of that DVD. The exercises are a separate chapter. There is some overlap with some exercises on multiple DVDs. I do her exercises regularly, but only occasionally with the DVD, mostly on my own throughout the day.

Here is Katy's progression for doing a squat:

Danielle, do you know if there are any benefits to doing this in a turned-out position? Or does it have to be strictly parallel?

Agree with Danielle that Katy's DVD's are excellent, and it's important to note that:

1) they are rather short, and more intended as instructional rather than follow along (although you can, you would probably want to do more repetitions/hold for longer on your own)

2) there is some overlap of segments among DVD's - frex, if you have Knees and Hips and Down There, two exercises occur on both.

There was a discussion of this some time back and a poster (Donna?) made a useful table of what exercises show up on each DVD, but I can't for the life of me find her post. I hope she pops in here.

Re: feet turned out vs. in - in the absence of any bone-on-bone restriction, the general recommendation is to work towards keeping feet parallel - more involvement of inner thighs and rotators. But letting them turn out is more relaxing (at least for me). I can't remember what Katy specifically says about it, though. eta: Katy says keep foot bones parallel.
