Re: FS Form Check

Image is sideways...probably worth fixing for future form checks. Elbows are way too low, which will limit you pretty soon.

Re: FS Form Check

The knees and hips have to move at the same time. Your hips are moving back slightly before; this makes you lean forward from the get go.

Sit straight down inbetween your legs. Most of the tension should be on your butt and quads.

Re: FS Form Check

Let go of the bar and push your shoulders forward and up into the bar, that ought ot help a bit with the rack position.

Re: FS Form Check

With the exception of the grip, it really doesn't look that bad(although its kinda tough to tell with the camera angle). I'm not seeing excessive forward lean, torso looks pretty upright. Just focus on learning the rack position and you'll be alright.
