    Well, i dont see a problem with your squat, you seem to be hitting the right depth, all i can say is while you are squating, never look down, even when you are standing, because it deactivates something in your head (forgot name, was told about it by ray lewis at a football camp) and i cant see from the video but make sure you are not on your toes, ground your heels.

    You sure stand there for a long time...so long it is kind of weird. I mean it took almost a full minute to do 3 reps.

    Olympic lifters squat all the way down because that is where they catch the bar for clean & jerks and snatches. So you'd have to go much lower to be an Olympic squat if you are striving for the same goals.
