    A few things:

    1) You are not getting your low back all the way in extension. Arch the low back hard. Its possible that belt is interfering. I would suggest not using that belt right now and consider ordering a properly made one, fitted to your size.
    2) Lock out all the way at the top. Stand tall. Chest up.
    3) Use clips

    Much better job setting the back, although it could still be a little better. I would suggest looking forward more(10-15 feet in front) and really squeeze the chest up hard. Lock out every rep like you did on the 5th rep

    Better. The bar seems to be moving around quite a bit when you reset in between reps. Try to limit that. Try to set it right back in the same spot(midfoot, slight shin angle) every time. It would be helpful to see a view from the side, about hip height, slightly in front of the bar. That way I can see shin position/ barbell movement in between reps

    Ok this is more of a "front 45 degree" angle. Try to film from about "front 15 degree" angle. Basically in between that and a direct side view. And that rack is blocking the view as well. From what I can see though:

    1) Breathe only at the bottom.
    2) Work on making every rep look the same. Your last two reps you lean back with your head and neck. Just stand straight up
