okay i'm new to powerlifting and i'm still just getting used to the bar and getting my form down. when i get used to an exercise i am usually really efficient, and train really hard. i was hoping someone could give me a link to the MOST COMPREHENSIVE explanations for squatting and deadlifts, both straight legged and regular. i have these videos that someone had posted before, but want the most in depth, accurate stuff i can find, since i train by myself and have no idea how well i've grasped these concepts and don't wanna hurt myself. thanks in advance

be hard for dead and squat as lots of people do them differently depending on limb length etc.

sorry let me be more specific - i just want to know the general pointers, like keep your back arched, don't bounce through teh bottom of squats, whether or not to go past when your thighs are horizontal, stuff like that. basically all the things not to do, as i'm still using low weights and getting used to the motions
