ah yes – if you hang out at the bottom and relax, that is a problem to re-generate tension to get back up.  always try to maintain tension the whole way down and back up.  this goes for any lift to never let tension go ever because recapturing the tension can be impossible, if you let it go in the middle somewhere.

try not to go as deep, maintaining tension throughout the whole time, and see if you can get past the weight limit of where you would normally valgus collapse.
btw nobody says you gotta squat to deep squat position – getting to horizontal, or a little past horizontal is more than fine…
