Yes there is alot of information presented in Becoming A Supple Leopard.
Keeping it section by section will help as you build a foundation of knowledge as it is presented.
Feet turned out in a squat isn’t necessarily a set up issue. It could be, but for some they must turn their feet out when squatting because of tight ankles/missing rom in the ankle. You look up/down stream of where you see problem.
If you aren’t aware of areas that need attention you can start with Episode 1 and move through the Year of Mobility as a start. This is the first page of following episodes This is a great way to start. You’ll be introduced to concepts, theory, tools, etc. as they were introduced. This way you can build your exposure and knowledge and not be overwhelmed by the amount of information. Working through the episodes you will address all different areas, restrictions etc. Some you’ll find are in a good place, some may need attention that you didn’t know may need attention because you haven’t experienced restrictions, pain, etc. Pain is a lagging indicator that an area needs attention. You need to move away from pain being the cue that an area needs attention.
There are a couple episodes that address programming for mobility.
Have you taken a crack at finding episodes that address what you are looking for?
Yes getting feedback on how you perform different skills is one way identify areas that need attention.
