My biggest concern would be that when you start, your chest is is basically parallel with the ground, as a result, on the heavier weights you probably aren't able to keep the bar close enough to get underneath.

The second issue would be the catch itself, the way you force your neck out, you force your chest down which means more of the weight is being carried by your shoulders which become increasingly difficult with heavy weight.

Keep your chest up at all time, and you will keep be able to keep that bar over your centre of gravity, which leads to making the heavier lifts.
