Also, imagine the femurs can “get longer” from the center of the bone. If the femur was divided equally in half, they could be “stretched” forward and backward.

Obviously, the bones in your legs don’t have the capability to move like this, but the mental focus and intent of the imagery really sets the hips for a proper squat. Try it out and let me know in the comments section if it worked for you or your students.
