    Please see the sticky again to optimize future videos (lighting, light clothing, all of your body in the video).

    Start each rep standing up (your knees are too bent). Initiate each rep by leaning over more and sending your butt back more. Goal is to get barbell over mid foot and keep it there. You then need to cut your depth off so that it is just below parallel.

    Coach Hayden-William Courtland:

    I appreciate your help, I'll work on those observations today in the warm - up.

    Thanks,

    The only thing I would contribute while concurring with Hayden is that you want to be locked in and directed when you step out of the rack - up (off the pins) and then a version of step back 1, step 2 . . .if you need to adjust width - do it purposefully and strong. The way you start a lift can definitely have an impact on your performance of the lift and successfully finishing the lift. I personally start bracing the minute my hands touch the bar. Too much pep in your step backing out. Slow it down . a bit more methodical and purposeful. Then nail the lift. You will do excellent.
