It's not exaggerated in this screenshot as you do get but it's still too forward. This is partially because you are going slow and fully extending through your ankles by shifting weight from the heel to the ball of the foot.
Blair, thanks for all the feedback, I'm still a little confused though.

Is the problem that my ankles are extending at all, that they are extending too far, that I'm spending too much time with them extended and need to start the pull under sooner, or all three? Am I "jumping" too much?

I've read about how you're suppose to keep your center of mass over the front of the heel even though the pressure moves to the ball of the foot but I don't really understand that concept yet. I don't understand how to do that. Is the problem that I'm pushing too hard through my ankles? Should I reverse the pull before my heels get that high off the ground?

Just to be sure since your screenshot is from the first video, in the newer video from today, this is still too far forward and too much ankle extension correct?
