      Here’s what’s going on:

      My right foot wants to rotate out. Both when I squat and in my daily life. It’s almost as if that’s the “natural” position of the foot by now. In order for it to point forward, I need to be aware of it and think “straight foot. Straight foot.”
      My left foot – on the other hand – is fine. It points forward without effort and almost automatically.
      So, I’m looking to have my right foot behave the same way 🙂
      Question is… how?
      Maybe someone can point me to some mwod videos that address what’s going on and how to fix it?

      One aspect is you are breaking a habit which can take some time.
      You are aware your right foot is rotating out now which is a start.
      The first bit it will be a conscious reminding yourself straight foot.

      Take a look at these episodes:
