Your knees are not out over your toes at the bottom of the lift. Use your butt to force your knees out wider. When your knee comes inward, it creates a sheer force on the inside of your knee, especially your left one which is the worst offender of the two. It's one thing to shimmy a knee once in a while on a big effort, but to do it consistently builds up wear and tear in one area and weakens it.

Also, you get forward on your toes more than you should. If you're going to squat high bar, your back needs to be more upright. As it is now, when the weight gets forward on you, you chase it to get back under it which also puts stress on the knees.

Just my .02

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
