The slight slowing of the down movement which you already talked about, and DON'T LOOK DOWN with the weight loaded lol. Make sure to look high to keep everything tightened - you're in a corner, you don't need to worry about what crack you're standing on and just get the feel for where your feel should be....mirror might help.

Otherwise, esta bien
there is a mirror right in front of me. Thanks for the tips. On the second paragraph are you talking about squats or deads? I have the mirror in front for deads

Try to keep it closer to your body and get a little more knee bend into the movement and push through the ground.

Squats look good though even though you look fat!
haha I do man. i'll take more video on Saturday when I do them again. You think I should deload back to 225?
