    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I'll toss my shame into the mix.

    Motivation:

    I'm fat, my form is questionable, and I look like ****.
    I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.

    I tore a muscle in my back because my Judo coach told me to look up while I squatting, like you do mate.

    My back was too arched as a result, and I'm pretty flexible too so it was hyper-extended.

    So I went and asked Rippetoe and he tore me a new one, read the damn book he said.

    He was right. Since then I never looked up while squatting, better for the back, maybe you should try comparing your back angle to other lifters', you will see that your back is pretty arched.

    This leads to having no "hip drive" (he said it, not me) which is kind of like leg pressing more than squatting.

    I'm no expert or anything, can only squat 1xBW and I ain't trying to lecture anyone so take what I'm saying for what it's worth...nothing.

    Just something to think about mate, cheers.

    You can check out my squat if you want for comparison here:

    Yeah don't explode up uncontrolled like that. I always flinch whenever I see someones weight move excessively at the top of the lift. Also I think its a sign you can do heavier but don't listen to me as I'm not really a serious lifter. I personally think the rest of your form is fine. I did pretty much sumo squats, though.

    Anyways, when I used to lift (I hit 315 and I haven't done squats since then) I always moved deliberately and slowly. To be honest, the feeling of your spine being pressed down, I wouldn't even dream of going up that fast.

    Actually, when training for athletic purposes you always want to try to move the weight concentrically as fast a possible when lifting heavy weights, but with enough control that you're not locking and snapping the joints. It's a neurological trick--it trains speed/power. If you're lifting for bodybuilding you won't necessarily do that.

    Don't worry - at least you're training.

    By the way, background music seems serendipitous.
