    knees are coming more forward than I prefer and it looks like you are putting weight on your toes instead of the whole foot and/or more towards the heel.

    Depth looks good.

    It's not bad but you are GMing out of the hole. You need to sit back more on your heels and use more glutes. What kind of shoes are those?

    true, they're some old nike sneakers. I've been meaning to get some chuck taylors for squats and deads though.

    Push your knees out, sit back, get on your heals. Siting back and knees out not forward are gonna be biggies, keep your chest up too.

    just echoing what other's have said, you're bent over far too much on the way up.

    you'd probably benefit from getting some weightlifting shoes/ increasing ankle flexibility with that squat style.

    Its strong. Oh and guys, knee flexion isn't a bad thing.

    no not really, they would probably just accentuate his ankle inflexibility.

    its not the sole deformation thats throwing him off a little. I've seen guys squat 260+ kg in similar shoes.

    You need a shoe with a higher heal. Chucks are not going to help at all. Also adjust where the bar is placed it will help with staying upright and prevents the shoulders from coming your knees, which will only throw you out of balance.

    i *love* them for squatting a2g though. they're amazing for that. definitely worth it

    But in his case he does need to sit back, and force his knees out, and keep the chest up.
    Pushing the knees out, getting upright and sitting back some more are goign to help him tremendously.

    I got a pair of weightlifting shoes, a polish brand, built like fucking tanks, yet light. I think its personally the best money I spent towards my training hands down.

    Your knees shoot too far forward over your toes and your upper body rounds a little more than I like, but that's all been covered already.

    Are you wearing something over your shoulders, like a sissy pad or something? The vid looked like you had a vest or something on.
