    Ive never had my form checked on this lift. This is my volume day 3rd set at 63.75 kg. Intensity day will be 68.75 kg this week. Is it a problem my heels come off the ground a bit towards the end of the lift? Thanks.

    When I started lifting SS in October last year I was at 80kg and now I am up to 102kg. I know I still look skinny. My waist is 36-37 neck is 16.5.

    Your feet are actually moving around a lot in general over the course of your lift - toes and heels are coming up multiple times. This is a stability issue more than a matter of extending the ankles to drive the bar up.

    Watch your video on screen (slowed down, if need be), and with a ruler or other straightedge vertical at the back of your heels. Watch what your shoulders are doing throughout the movement, and tell us what you see.

    OK, I see first off, my feet wobbling around a lot losing balance over mid-foot. Secondly, placing the straight edge on the clip, I see that my hip drive is pushing my shoulders back behind the straight line and then forward as I extend my arms into the lock out. First point seems wrong. I need to work on grounding myself and stop fidgeting around with my toes.
