Question Bent over row angle?

Do I think it right that the more I'm upright, the less the lats will be engaged, and more traps and middle delts will work?

How Not To Lean Forward During Squatting

I'm pretty sure I lean forward too much while squatting, and no matter what I do I can't help it. It keeps me from falling backwards. How should I keep myself more straight up without falling backwards?

Is it unusual to not feel my chest being worked until AFTER a set of bench presses?

Currently running SL 5x5 right now but I am to weak to lift the bar so I work with a pair of 20ish LB dumbbells for time being, doing 5 sets of 5-8 reps. While doing the presses, I try to keep my feet on the ground and my back arched. For whatever reason, I don't feel the contraction of my pecs...
