Good catch with the shoulders rising and the hips not. Thanks. I'll be focusing on moving them together next workout. I think the heaviness of the bar threw me off. What do you mean by my timing being off?
It's more about relative measurements, and getting yourself in a good position. With low bar and a very narrow stance you likely have a large distance from your hip to the bar versus a wider stance. I would squat at least shoulder width apart.

Plus, you need to keep your knees apart.

What I mean by timing is your body/brain are used a certain speed and timing on when to work on raising your chest and hips. Since you were slower than usual you tried to raise your chest/shoulders before you were in position.

I try to try to throw my neck into the bar when I start back up. My problem is I can good morning the weight a bit and this works for me. I've learned this through experience, and you might need a different cue to fix your issue.
