    Rip, thoughts?
    Look at the baseboard: the video is tilted.

Only because, recently when I changed to have an asymmetrical grip, which gave me a more centred bar, it didnt feel weirdly wonky like it did when I had a symmetrical grip with a centred bar that was forced.
    I don't want to sound rude, but the bar needs to be in the right place, and that's in the middle of your back.
    That's necessary.
    Then, you need to take a symmetric grip on it. The fact that it might feel wonky might be expected, but you will just have to persevere, you will adapt to it in the end.

    Sorry, here is a new video I just filmed using a rear-birdeye view to hopefully give a better view of my squat issue, as it was harder to see from other views.

    But, it is probably easier to see through these stills I took from the video:

    Any chance of an arm length asymmetry in play here?

    Also, IPB, I think the OP understands that a plumb bar is the goal, but has found that he can't get that with a symmetrical grip.
