I'd recommend at the beginning of the lift, keep your head and chest upward, focus on a point near the ceiling. When you bent down, you were looking down and that can cause you to round your back and lean forward in the lift, which can put undue stress on your back and increase risk of injury as your body will try to over-compensate to pull through the lift.. Your speed looked great and lower body position looked great as well. Keep up the great work.

also to add to that, keep your arms locked out, your hands are to act as 'hooks' and nothing else. When your arms are bent like that, they end up participating in the lift and can possibly result in a biceps tear. Looking strong, keep it up.

I did notice that when i watched the video, i had no idea that my arm was not straight.
Thanks for pointing it out, i wasnt sure if it was a problem or not, i guess it is.
