Thanks Kit, and thanks for sharing that. It shines the light on the need for practice, and the importance of not using one form pointer at the expense of another.

I've seen a couple videos recently with the "hip shove" much more exaggerated than this, resulting in the bar moving forward quite a bit. This puts the lifter in a precarious position, placing a greater degree of stress on the lower back, and usually turns a squat into a pseudo-good morning

Here we can see Ripp doing it, but it's a natural part of the squat movement and not a precursor The barbell stays over the center of his feet:
