    Please review and comment,
    Video is of 3rd work set of 5 reps at 222lbs
    46 years old, 5'9" 170 lbs.
    Been on NLP for about three months(I have put on seven pounds of body weight in the process). I have slowed down to adding a total of about 5 lbs a week to my work set, mostly due to having some back pain after squats and deadlifts.
    I realized i wasn't taking a big breath and forming a rigid spinal column and worked on that today, but would appreciate further feedback.

    Stance is too wide, affecting your depth.

    7lbs in 3 months - you can do better than that. In my experience nothing aids recovery like a 1000 surplus calories, at least. Everything suddenly feels better and you feel stronger every workout. That comes out to 1-2 pounds per week weight gain. I'm not qualified to talk about form - but you need to eat more.
