Squat form check
 
I am specifically concerned that I occasionally rack the bar where it sits "uneven" on my shoulders... the right tends to be higher. I wanted to see if anyone can tell if it looks like it is due to a depressed left shoulder or something more downstream such as my stance (I sometimes catch myself with my left foot slightly behind by right), unbalanced leg strength, mobility ext...

Also any general critiques would be much appreciated.

Squats at 95% 1RM so they are not too pretty.

Re: Squat form check
 
probably need to widen up the stance a little bit and drive those knees out throughout the lift.....another thing is don't bounce out of the hole at the bottom control the lift throughout and maintain that muscle tension
