Greg, thanks again for the reply. I have been focusing on a very upright squat for some time now and have been alternating pause back squats and 1 & 1/4 front squats for my high volume/low intensity squat days (3 squat days during my training week).
In regards to the pulls, I will definitely finish them in full extension. I originally meant I would make a conscious effort to break from the floor without rocking back onto my heels by the "flat-footed pull" comment. I will incorporate more postural strength work with the pause pulls and maybe even controlled negatives to the correct start position.
Thanks again, and hopefully I will be able to post back a video in some time showing improvement.
