    Just some suggestions that may help.

    I know you want to get all amped up for your lift but don't do it at the cost of not using a good set up and a controlled take out. Don't rush, no one is going to take it away from you. You may also want to shorten up that walk out. You not only waste energy walking it across the gym but the more steps you take back, the greater the chance of injury. When you're standing there, the weight is loaded on both legs, when you step, it shifts and the weight stays the same. Most PLers love a Monolift for these reasons. Shorter steps will be better.

    I like the sleeves, that's new, right? Form looked good to me but I was one who didn't have a problem with your last vid.

    I am only going to say this once, then it's up to you to do as you please but stop the low reps. You're coming off multiple injuries for God's sake, be careful. Yeah that was not a max but your just inviting trouble.

    What is “buttwink”? Serious question, I’ve never heard of that.
    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead.
    Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow.
    Do not walk beside me either.
    Pretty much just leave me alone.

    butt winks should be avoided because it increases force on your spine. A buttwink occurs when your lumbar spine rounds and your pelvis tilts a bit at the bottom of the squat in a posterior fashion.

    I agree with you on the low reps. I started this power trainer that starts out with lower weight and high volume so I think that will help me ease back into the top sets later on. My back has been feeling great on squats lately. I will definitely work on that set up and walk out. Taking these videos really helps me. Thanks man.

    Your 3 step walkout and placement is fine. You're just walking back too far. All you need to do is walk back just far enough to clear the rack
