    Default Foot position during ballistics

    I've seen many videos of people doing swings and snatches and all of them have slightly different foot positions. Since all of my Pavel book are on loan to buddies who I'm in the process of bringing into the party, I am forced to ask the question here.

    What is the correct foot position? I seem to remember Pavel's being just over shoulder width apart, and slightly angled outward. However, I seem to remember reading on the boards that they must be exactly parallel, like train tracks. Is there a right way and a wrong way? I have noticed that I work different muscles depending on the foot position.

    It's just your basic squat stance. Knees tracking over toes, feet a bit wider than shoulder width and parallel or pointed out a bit. Drop to a full SQ and see what's comfortable for you.

    First and foremost, feet symetrical whether toes are pointing out or not.
    Flexibility determines the width etc.
