    Definitely need to work harder on keeping the knees out. Stance may be a bit too wide but its tough to tell. A view from directly behind would give good insight into both of those things. Otherwise good!

    Here is today at 375x5x3.

    YouTube

    Tried bringing my stance in a little each set and by the end my hamstrings and adductors were sore from the new use. Still seeing some knee cave.

    What do you see?

    Ok. Like I said, I couldn't really tell about the stance width from the original vid. The width is fine, and it could even be a little wider than it was by the end. But if the adductors are sore that means you are in the right place. Keep shoving the knees out hard.

    You probably also want to look at the grip. It looks a little loose, with your wrists bent back. Try getting your hands over the bar more to produce a straight wrist position. If you have to widen the grip to do this that's ok. You want your upper back in tight, thoracic extension

    Not a coach here so take this advice with a bag of salt.

    First, nice weight you're moving there.
    Second, definitely some knee cave there on the way up.
    Third, your back angle is all over the place on the way up. Losing some tightness at the bottom perhaps? Think hip drive, moving those hips straight up out of the bottom.

    Good work with 375!

    Grab the floor with your feet like eagle talons.

    Put something 6 ft in front of you on the floor and look at it like it owes you money.
