Olympic Weightlifters often train their squats in a wider-than-you-think-is-necessary stance, and it’s reflected in a lot of their receiving positions for the snatch, clean, and jerk.

If you haven’t played with a wider base of support then today is the day to try, especially in the warmup and first couple of sets. With adequate practice it’ll become home base for you and you’ll find yourself lifting heavier, faster, with more power.
