    the weight is not in your heels and you're not sitting back.

    ^^ this. If u focus on not letting your knees go over ur toes it should correct these issues.

    that was pretty solid there brother! just try and sit back deeper at the lowest point of the motion to really work your glutes and get the full range of motion. yeah your weight is shifting to your toes, but that is because it's the most natural positioning. you derive a lot of power from the balls of your feet when squatting. deadlifts are the exact opposite, your weight shifts to your heels. if you want to focus your weight on your heals while squatting avoid using athletic shoes like running shoes or basketball shoes. they raise your foot up into a "sprinters" position, try doing it barefoot or with some All-Start Chuck Ts. other than that primo set hombre keep up the good work!

    It's hard to tell, but it looked like you were locking out your knees when you brought the weight back up. Locking your knees when you bring the weight back up is bad. I know this thread was from a while ago, but I hope this is helpful!

    Your heels are coming off the ground. Also it's hard to tell if you're doing it from the side, but make sure your scapula (shoulder blades) are tightly retracted throughout the movement. You'll also want to go a couple inches deeper. Ideally, you want your hip crease below the knee, unless you're training to compete in certain powerlifting federations. Lastly, adjust the rack hook height a little lower before you lift off. It looks like you're more or less standing fully extended when you got under the bar. You want your knees bent slightly and lift off with the glutes.
