    Other than form check, I also had a question. I have been going up by 15lbs each workout since 225lbs. Should I keep going up that same amount or should I start doing smaller 5lb jumps.

    Hereís the video for reference.

    I have. Should I lower the weight this upcoming workout to practice the cue?

    If the bar goes forward as it leaves the floor, it's wrong.

    Try separating steps 3 and 4 of the setup more. Bring your shins to the bar, then pull your back tight. By trying to do both at the same time, you are moving too quickly and pushing the bar forward.

    I think Ericís advice is very good and actionable.
