    It looks like you have long legs, or at least long femurs, which makes things strange to me. Most people try to keep their shins more vertical from a side view when squatting. If you had some squat shoes, it might help a little. Also, try moving your hips back first from the top and them back further, this might help with your bar path. The bar isn't going straight up and down, it drifts forward as you drop.

    I couldn't get a video of today's workout but I did buy a pair of Adidas Powerlift 4 WL shoes and they seem to help immensely. I'm looking forward to checking if my bar path is straighter now. My lower back pain is magically gone!
