Chest up. Elbows. remember to lock it out at the top.
I will work on locking out every rep.

Are you referring to wider hands or wider stance?

This makes me think you are saying my stance is narrow. How wide should it be? Just wider? I have another video that might show the stance a little more clearly. Here



The idea, is to be doing low bar squats. In fact, the very first angle is my "normal" bar position. The remaining sets/reps were done in a lower bar position. Trying to get to where Ripp recommends, juts below the bony spine of the scapula. Of course, that causes pain in my shoulder due to flexibility issues. But I feel like it's been easier to squat since moving the bar down the extra 1" or so.

Thanks for looking.
