    Critique please. I think my last few reps were slightly high.

    Nope. The first rep might've been to parallel, but it's difficult to see. The rest were very clearly shallow.

    As above. Not a good camera angle but apart from the 1st one which is debatable, none were deep enough. Lower the weight and go deeper.

    Anyone else find it impossible to look away from Mr Fox's video avatar thing? I was unable to blink for 2 hours

    No offense, but it was no were close.

    I was suprised that you said you did 150 5x5 squat but could only do 180x1 deadlift.

    The first one might have been close (it's hard to tell but I'd say it was maybe an inch high) but the rest were way too high to the point that you were half squatting at the end.

    I don't know, sometimes people are built better for squatting than for deadlift - I've got only a 145kg deadlift but a 145kg plenty deep enough squat. Obviously it is less usual though so it does make sense to check your depth if your ratio is off.

    yeah those are about where my squats are at....but I fully admit to not doing deep squats. If I didn't have to renew my passport I'd get squatting shoes this friday.

    I'd vow for first rep but nothing else.

    Not a great angle with the camera though eh.
