Strong session, Max! Bench and pull looked great! The squat was pretty ugly, and I know its normal for you to have a strong forward lean. I have been fighting this forever in my own squat and I think you are loosing 10-15 percent on your squat because of it. I would get your hands out a little further, and drive your elbows under the bar hard (something I think Sam Byrd once told you). Find a spot about 20 degrees up and look at it the whole time you squat, from setup to rack command (this should force you to pack your neck). This is the only thing that prevents me from folding over like an accordion. Either way good luck at your meet.
