Squat form

Just wanted to clarify some stuff about proper form for squats. Feet are shoulder width apart and pointing out alittle? And do you focus your weight on the heels or should it be balanced between your heels and balls of feet? Thanks in advance

Feet width is optional for different people but yes a lot of big squatters have a wider than shoulder stance with feet pointed out a little. You drive from your heels!
Depth should be parallel or lower.

Thank you, I see way to many people at the gym doing squats and not even getting close to parallel.
