Barbell Squats

I've been hitting the weights lately, and watching a few Youtube videos for tips, techniques and motivation.

One of the best videos I've watched for technique is the one below, on performing a barbell squat.  The lesson starts at 1:20.

After watching this video, I took nearly all of the advice, and managed to improve my 5 rep squat weight by 25%.  It's still not a ton of weight, but it's more than I've ever done.  All it took was some good advice on technique, losing the sneakers, and a $15 weightlifting belt!
