those look a little more GM-ish...hips coming up a bit too quickly. Both forms are acceptable. I think if that's comfortable for you, you can correct the GM in time, I'll bet it's going to require a tighter wedge with the bar further down your back to make it feel right. Persoanlly, having jacked elbows is no fun so I let the bar ride higher.

honestly, i wouldn't worry too much either way. what feels comfortable for you is the bigger question. plus you have no shoes and are squatting onto a stack of textbooks. I'm concerned about your social life.

Honestly those squats felt kind bad, uncomfortable and caused some lower back tightness. I think I'll stick to how I was doing it before. Thanks.

you're right. those pulls do look nice and easy, good hip position.

good idea to trust your own judgment on the squats.
