Squat check

On fierce 5, had to drop weight after failing 102.5kg twice. Dropped to 87.5kg. Any form pointers would be appreciated. I seem to struggle getting deep enough consistently and driving out of the hole. Would the length of my legs be causing a inefficient lever angle? https://youtu.be/38p9OHv7Gk8

Is it Risky to Puff Out Your Chest When Doing Standing Dumbbell Press?
