    The bar is in the correct position now, but your definitely high on all of these reps. Take a half inch wider stance, point your toes out a little more, get your knees out, and sit back more.

    How tight are you bracing before you begin? Specifically between rep 4 and 5 (when you are starting to breathe a little heavier) it almost looks like you begin to squat after the exhale which would make it extremely difficult to keep the same back angle.

    Here’s 255 x 5 x 1:

    I focused on:

    Widening my stance
    Pointing my toes out more
    Hitting proper depth

    I felt #4 might have been a bit shallow (just a tad) and that I may have lifted my chest slightly on the ascent for #4 and #5.

    Thanks for all your help/feedback.

    P.S. Rip, thank you for not crucifying me for submitting a video with above parallel squats.

    These are a lot better. Good depth. Good back and knee position. They're a little slow, but it seems like you were probably doing that to get correct depth.

    I would work on narrowing your hands next.
