    You're not quite hitting depth.
    Elbows should not be pointed back like that. It puts a lot of stress on your forearms. Down and in as much as you can.

    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    im for your elbows being out a tad bit but thats too much... like lactose said, your not hitting depth. i think the reason is that your not pushing your knees out far enough...nvm... after seeing the video a second time, it looks like your high bar squatting and i have no experience with that so disregard my post...if you were low bar squatting i would say that your elbows are a tad high, but still dont want your forearms being straight up and down, and would say to push your knees out on the descend BUT like i said i have no experience in high bar so dont take my post as advice AT ALL

    Pretty long femurs, could use some more forward knee travel. You will likely have to work on your dorsiflexion.

    If that squat stand with the fixed safety bar makes it difficult to achieve depth then use a power rack.

    All - appreciate the help.

    I'm going to add some stretching for my dorsiflexion and hip flexors and try to hit better depth.

    Thanks
