From what I can tell, that looked pretty nice. It's not perfect but you already know that. Your back might be loose actually, which means you can improve quite a lot. Think in terms of pushing hips forward a tad and tightening up and locking your core just before initiating the squat. But keep at it you'll get there.
Goals: Cutting to 6-8% bodyfat

yeah i'd agree, looks pretty solid. one little comment: the bar seems to be coming forward a bit. that is, your center of mass is moving forward and back when you basically want to be moving just up and down. not a huge problem and you seem to be keeping your elbows up and the bar stable in any event. dunno, just something that might start to affect things once you're going heavier.

lbss-- yeah definitely the weight seems a bit forward.  the video doesn't do it justice but the bar is literally against my neck/throat to the point where it is almost cutting off breathing.  I have curving of the back, which makes it so easy for the weight to fall forward.  I definitely need to work on not slouching and posture issues.  I remember when I was 13-14 playing competitive bball, my posture was as straight as a board, but years of slouching and couch potato messed it up.
