    Lee- Your grip is wide and your knees are traveling forward at the bottom.

    Yea. And I'm assuming that was a max effort single, doubtful there is all that much value in analyzing those. How about a work set?

    A challenging set of 5 would be more helpful. In the meantime, widen your stance so your heels are under your shoulders and turn your toes out about 30 degrees.

    Really weird thing is, I used to squat with a wider stance but it wrecks my hips when weights get heavy, not sure if that's a flexbility thing

    I have what looks like the same rack. Would never trust It with 170 kg.
    Only two of four sides of each section welded, hope yours is better

    No mine definitely isn't better it's a piece of junk 😂

    However I spent most of money on the bar and plates at the time, I try not to use it but the gym near me is atrocious so I avoid it wherever possible
