squat form check and feet turned out while squatting

Hey Lance,

Do you mind taking a look at my squat vid. This is as deep as I can go. It's weird because I think I am doing it ATG style but on camera it looks like my hip crease barely breaks parrallel. I have on flat soled shoes so I use 10 pound plates as a heel lift. I also have to turn my feet out to a 45 degree angle to get down that low, my knees still track over my toes; but I'm wondering is this optimal or anything like that? Should I strive to have my feet pointing more straight forward? by the way I'm 6'3. I just wanna make sure this would be an optimal squat form while I strive for a double body weight squat.
any thoughts would be much appreciated man, thanks for your time.

  Thats pretty good man, nothing glaringly wrong at all there.  The one thing youll have to be careful of is coming to the toes at the bottom, focus on driving your heels into those plates as hard as you can.  You can lift your toes in your shoes if you still go forward and that helps as well.

  Keep pushing your hips to the rear as you near the bottom, your pelvis isnt really tucking  there badly but as you go heavier its something you will have to watch for. 

 Definitely competent form to keep progressing your squat though, nice work.
Relax.

Okay thanks, I will work on those two things. I have notice that minor pelvis tuck as well, I feel it may be due to my hamstrings being tight.. And awesome quick reply by the way. really appreciate that.
