Here’s a do and some don’ts.

Do go as low as you can but don’t let your pelvis rotate back. You should maintain lordosis all the way down. If it starts to go at parallel that’s it don’t go lower.

As with foot position you can work on going lower by increasing ankle flexibility.

Don’t do those 45 degree squats unless you’ve go a safety bar at the top (to stop you locking out or to press against) as well as the bottom.

But then these aren’t really squats are they. More like ‘Weighted Bunny Hops’.
