I recently began training with Westside template and done fair amount of reading but I am still uncertain about somethings. There is lots of advanced guys on this forum so I thought this would be perfect place to get some solid advice.

My max Squat is 455X2 (in belt + wraps)
I was using EliteFTS article "Top 3 Dynamic Squat and Dynamic Bench Cycles" to set up my Band box squat wave.
I based this on 455lbX1
* Week 1 – 47% for 8 sets 2 reps (215lb)
* Week 2 – 51% for 8 sets 2 reps (235lb)
* Week 3- 53% for 8 sets 2 reps (245lb)
In the vid I recorded the last 4 sets of 8. I realize I am very slow off the box and I should go lighter because DE is about speed and how fast you move the bar.
My questions are:
1-How should I set up my wave % now? Should I go by feel on how fast I am accelerating and forget about %s for now?
2-What am I doing wrong form wise? Any major form breaks? Just a basic critique and what to keep in mind when doing box squats.
