Squat Form Check Please

Hello,

I'm coming back up from a back injury, I'm currently on Wendler 531, I started light and spent the first three months losing weight and rehabbing my back, and probably two months before it doing a modified program to rehab my back.

This was a 1+ workset, I got 5 reps @ 295, should've had more but I was really tired and just wiped for some reason.

Anyway any tips you could give me are appreciated:

Link is WFS:

The video is not the best, it is dark but does lighten for the work sets.

doesn't look bad at all. i would attempt to accelerate more. try to keep moving the bar faster and faster as you come up, like you are gonna try and jump with it. also, use your hips more. once you get about half way up, slam the hips forward instead of keeping on trying to press with the legs. slam the hips forward and rock the shoulders back.

Looked pretty good from this angle. A front angle or 45 degree angle might help identify if there is any other issues like knees drifting in.

Depth was pretty good with the exception of one rep, so no big deal.

My only suggestion is to be a little tighter, you seem to be wobbling a bit.

Re: Squat Form Check Please

Thanks for the feedback I've injured myself twice on squats so I'm treading really carefully. I want a 405 back squat by the end of summer, my current 1 RM is 345 (did it last week) @ my current body-weight of 203, we'll see if I can stay healthy, I should be close.
