This is definitely a big improvement over what I remember you posting before. My main suggestion would be to try to open up a bit more at the top of your pull - you look very tight, probably trying to make sure you change directions and get under the bar quickly, but it's preventing you from finishing your extension and making your arms a bit tense. Use the lats to push the bar back into the hips with relaxed arms and use the glutes to help finish the hip extension while you push w the legs. If you do it right, you'll really feel the bar pop up for you with that last little bit of extension and you'll still be able to change directions very quickly. Nice work.
