Critique on squat form and technique

I uploaded a short video of myself doing just a bodyweight squat. I realize I have brutal form as I've only started squatting the past week and it gave me some back pain initially. I really want to master the perfect squat technique.

Thanks!

you don't even have any weight on your back and you aren't going parallel? not good. much deeper would be much better. if anybody else watches your vid, they will agree with me.
number of bitches boomed-1 (only thus far though)
number of times i boomed a bitch-68 (she has serious tits)

Squatting with a bar + weight is vastly different than squatting with just bw. Get a vid of that and see where you're at.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

  Dont over arch like that at the top of the squat, thats going to be detrimental to your lower back with weight on your shoulders. And yes, form is going to be different with a loaded back squat than a body weight squat so you may want to re post next time you squat.
Relax.
