Thanks Mike,
Here is my list of hip mobility exercises that I am familiar with and I am planning on using again (all squats just bodyweight):

Leg swings - front to back, side to side
Split Squats
Lateral Squats
Crossover Reverse Lunge
Good morning stretch for hamstring
Squat stretch (sitting in the bottom position, pushing knees out and maintaining a big chest and strong arch)

Do you recommend any others?
-----------------------------

Sickness update:

Congestion came back as well as sore throat, but only minorly and in the morning. I can beat this, I get today off because after work I take my 5 year old to bell-choir practice for a Christmas show and then I have a bible study. The day of rest should do me well.

Well, I took of Wednesday as well. I actually only worked a half day, went home at lunch time and napped. I feel much better today, but still not workout ready. I have lots of congestion but it's moved to my throat, which for me, usually means that I'm almost over it. I'll spend today hacking up crap and resting so hopefully, Friday will be a good workout.

This is the first time I've missed multiple days of workouts from a sickness since November 2008 when I had the flu. Pretty good track record if you ask me.

Hey man, 3 things I recommend for hip mobility

1. Hip Flexion - Hold on to the dip bars with one foot on the ground. Take your other leg and drive your kneed up to your chest as fast as possible and extend your leg again (without allowing your foot to hit the ground) and then drive it back up. 2-3 sets of 20-25 per leg
2. Hip Extension - 'Single Leg Reaches' For these begin on all fours and take one knee and bring it to your chest and then drive it up into the air into full extension and continue this constant motion. 2-3 sets X 20-25
3. Body Wt. Squats - These just help you work on your form and I usually begin with my hands in front of me before moving them to my temples on the later reps. Just practice pushing your glutes back.

These are what has always worked for me and I find that you can do the flexion and extension about 4 times a week. Your squat is already looking better, no doubt that you will continue to get stronger and 405 very soon.

Cool, good tips, visualizing number 2, it sounds like a mule kick/bird dog type movement. Do you use them as a warmup before a squat workout and then a couple other times during the week? Or do you do all 4 sessions seperate from workouts? Or something else entirely?

I truly appreciate your advice and your encouraging words, we'll both be hitting 400 plus soon.
