    Watch your knees, they drift forward a little further on each rep.

    A rear oblique is ideal for form checks for future reference.

    I'm willing to bet you're on your toes. Think about sitting your hips back as you descend, "butt back" is a good cue for this.

    You're over- doing the looking down, bring your gaze to about 5' in front of you on the floor.

    You're too vertical, point your nipples at the floor when you innitiate your descent.

    Bar may be too high, make sure it is just below (touching the under side of) your scapular spines.

    Stance maybe a touch wide, ensure heels are at shoulder width.

    Some lifting shoes will help too. Those ankles are collapsing in at the bottom.
