Here's the vids of squats from today. Been almost a year that I have been working on hip mobility & ROM on these. I'm a lot happier with the squat depth, and straightness of lower back on these. My sciatica has also not been acting up as I have been going up in weight which is a good sign. Any criticism of form, etc. is welcome. I think I need to go a bit deeper for these to be ligit in a PL meet.

Thanks for the feedback Jason. I will try to get my arms in closer. I think I also need to do some more kettlebell swings to get the upper back stiffness.
I'm not sure I can drop straighter down without bothering my knees. My proportions are weird in that to hit parallel, I have to bend over even more than if I was deadlifting. Hence all the work on the hip mobility. I'll see what I can figure out in my next video session. Maybe knee wraps would help.

A different view might help to see what's going on with your knees. Maybe it's flexibility, not getting pushed out enough or that your stance needs to come in. It appears by your video that you're doing more of a geared lifting form whereas with raw that's typically too much stress for the hips so the strain is being transferred to your back and knees.
