    Thanks for the comments everyone. And the skipping was actually after not jump roping for a long time I need to get back into it more. I'm 20 years old still a little indecisive if I want to train for performance or aesthetics. After my PL comp I should know for sure.

    Granted you can do double unders, but there is no need to jump so high and/or bend at the knees. You should just be spinning slightly faster and bouncing an itty bitty higher if at all.

    Your SQ technique looks pretty good overall. But get a decent belt if you plan on lifting seriously. Those belts with the narrow front suck for heavy squats or DL's.

    Word, I bought it when I didn't know any better. Same with the wraps I only get about 20lbs out of those. I feel my technique is pretty good as well however my lower back is my weakness that I'm working on right now to maintain better arch.
