    I had the same problem. I started focusing on changing my back angle within the first 1/3 of the movement on the way down and my problems went away. That allows you to better facilitate the hip drive on the way up without compromising too much back angle - that is, if you're keeping your chest up.

    I'd have to see a video. The way I see it, compromising some back angle to facilitate the hip drive is acceptable at the novice stage. I'd rather you lose a little bit of back angle and thrust your ass up then simply lift your chest like all the cool bros like to do at the gym.

    "Keep your chest up" is really all there is to it. I used have the same problem.

    This may mean looking straight ahead rather than down, as Rip recommends. Looking down does not work for me, personally.
