Can I have analysis on my jump technique please

Skip to :13... extra slow at :20

I squat deep as hell because I like it and it feels good. However, looking at what was probably a 37" running jump in this vid (one of my highest ever), I have a really sideways plant with like minimal knee bend. The left knee bends good, but the right knee (since I plant LR sideways) barely bends at all. Also, my lead-in step is pretty damn big. You can also see my side-plant at :04 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoPmRErov6A

One thing, however, that I notice I do well is that my gather is somewhat quick. Soon after planting my left foot, my right foot comes flying in (I learned this is good from here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ipv_5QIVNt8). I think what you want (and you can see this better in my slowmo) is for the right foot to be planted right before you descend completely and stabalize enough to begin the concentric portion of the jump. In my vid at :23 you can see that my right foot comes in JUSTTTT after the eccentric portion is done.. I'm thinking it'd be better if it came in JUST before, so I'll work on that. I mean, that should minimize GCT a bit and provide more force since two legs can stabilize the eccentric better than one, right?

0:17 looks basically perfect to me... and I never say "perfect".
