Bench/Row/DL/Press/Squat form check

I've read the SS book and practiced a fair bit so I'm just recorded doing light lifts just to check:

Re: Bench/Row/DL/Press/Squat form check

Nothing looks too bad but the weights look too light for you. Also, the size of the plates means your starting position for lifts from the ground is too low which is upsetting your ability to properly set the back. This also causes an exaggerated hip shoot (hips rising to fast) on the deads.
Try using some blocks to raise the starting position for the floor lifts. On the row your back was in a poor position which could lead to injury. So, get the bar a bit higher for the start. Really set your lower back and raise the chest (you seem to be using this cue already). It is possible to set the back from the starting position you are using but you aren't doing it so the blocks might help.
On the press you kind of exaggerate the lockout. At heavier weights you won't be able to do this but the weight looks too easy for you.
Squat looked OK but its hard to tell as the angle wasn't the best and, again, the weight looked too easy.
You look to be limited by your equipment - is there a gym you can go to?

Thanks, and no, not at the moment. But I do have more weight so I might just try to use blocks.
