    These got ugly at the end. Iíve had to reset my weight and work back up using box squats for the past 6 weeks to get rid of some horrid patellar tendinitis. I think itís almost on its way out. Anyhow, I was hoping to have fixed my form by now.

    Do the knees and back angle look OK? Knees to me look like they are not more than an inch past the toes. Knees collapse on the last couple reps as I lost tightness in my back especially on last rep.

    Thanks for the help.

    These are pretty good. Your knees and back look fine. Only problem I can see immediately is you start to raise your chest prematurely on the final few reps.

    OK thanks. Iíve noticed I tend to do that when Iím close to failure on a rep.

    I have another question. I kinda screwed up on Friday. I was supposed to hit 170 kg x 5 deadlift, but I accidentally loaded the bar with 180 kg (realizing this later). I was feeling really tired at the end of my workout having hit 2 PRs already. I went for the pull and was like ďoh damnĒ got it about an inch off the floor and then set it down. I hadnít eaten or slept well the night before and decided to sandbag it until next week. I felt down the rest of the evening thinking I was plateauing again. Then when I got home I realized I had loaded the bar 10 kilos too heavy. I felt better but still like a pussy bc I shouldíve at least pulled 1. Anyway, do I just retry 170 next Friday I guess?
