I think you're right too, with slowing down. Compare it with golf. When I rush I lose my form. When I rush in this I'll lose the form.

rippetoe says to line up with the bar cutting your feet roughly in half when you look down. when you squat down into position, the bar should touch your shins. this means your scalpula is directly overhead, and you won't have to compensate at all by bringing the bar into or away from your body (you can't do the lift if the bar is not eventually perpendicular to your scalpula).

I guarantee you will shoot up in weight if you practice, 275 will feel like nothing.
Will do.

I do have to say though, the video is a bit deceiving. I do have a lot of weight on my heels. Can't see it in this video but occasionally my toes raise off the ground slightly. Regardless, some work needed. I've always had a bit of a rounded lower back, hell, even when arched, but I'll throw another video in with light weight to keep the form all the way through. Also, earlier in my sets this time too.

Santa Hats thanks to Scott!
