Correcting squat form is one on the premiere issue's to deal with, when beginning crossfit. There are a number of great ways to do it. But the Best by far (in my mind) is burning out the muscles so that none are left except the hips to drive you to a standing position. Once your head and your ass are thinking together the whole squat thing begins to evolve. Remember, this is a foundational movement that should be constantly under heavy scrutiny and takes the average athlete 3-5yrs to develop... If you are not in athletic shape, expect delays on progress....
Flexibility in the squat is worked on by squatting, the bottom position of the squat is were the athlete begins to lose the lumbar curve. this will increase in a very short time of squatting with most athletes.
