The squats are awesome. Please never go back to this low-high-bar nightmare, keep improving that very athletic and upright low bar squat of yours.
The deads look amazingly easy. Not sure about the back angle: i mean it is perfectly straight but it is almost horizontal. No idea if that is intended or not, wrong or not.
Clean has that given issue that you say it is impossible to properly catch with elbows pointing forward. But if we take that for granted it looks great.
Snatch looks like the bar is traveling too far away from your body. Interestingly enough the heaviest one (55kg) looks much better.
Calve raises i think the ROM is too limited. I used to do them like that too up to 200kg and loved them. Those days i feel that going lighter but full ROM with pauses at top and bottom is the shit.

+100000 for filming and posting all that stuff.
woot

Thanks for the comments vag!

Yeah after looking at the videos I have to say the way I squat now is the best way. It's not like the knees aren't going forward... they are quite a bit. So the quads do work here too.

In the deadlift I stay with the hips high and load the posterior chain, and then try to lower them a bit while at the same time starting to lift (knees go a bit forward, there is some quad load as well at that point).

Obviously the form will suck from a point on, although with 160 kg it doesn't look THAT terrible (there is some back bending but I expected to look much worse).

In the clean... it's just a terrible thing with the lack of the rack position... I either catch it on my chest in a very high position or I fail the lift. At least I can use lighter weights and maybe benefit from the more specific speed of the lift to the jump...

In the snatch, the more I went up in weight the more I turned my hands inside.

Check this video for what I mean:

It made such a big difference. Before doing that I had the tendency to throw the bar forward (because that feels more natural, like in a KB swing, where you keep the arms straight all the way). But when I did this it was easier to keep the bar close to the body.

For the calf raises, that ROM is definitely VERY shallow. That's why I filmed it in the first place - to see how bad it is. After that I did sets with 70 kg and full, complete ROM. It's still very difficult because you have to maintain the balance.
