    Hello! I've got myself weightlifting shoes as recommended.

    Here are two worksets of me lifting 60kg (I weigh 75kg)

    Side angle

    The angle on required reading

    I changed my shirt in the middle because the first one was very loose and I thought you guys will have difficulty seeing my back.

    Thank you for your time, I appreciate this.

    He could narrow his stance a bit.

    bna, you need to reach back with your hips as soon as you start the squat and get leaned over sooner than you're doing here so that you keep everything balanced on midfoot. The knees go out and forward at the same time, then stop moving forward about half way through the descent.

    I'm reticent to go right to TUBOW if we can fix it by addressing the root cause first. Which in this case would be setting the back angle sooner and reaching back with the hips.
    If addressing the back angle doesn't correct it, then we'd go to TUBOW.

    Thank you.

    Day after tomorrow, I will try:

    - Narrower stance
    - Taking hips back and leaning over sooner

    and post a video for another form check.

    Should I keep the weight the same to focus on form or should I increase to 65kg?

    I think I could go higher.
