If you make the whole rep a little slower you'll be able to at least get down in the correct position.

It doesn't really matter how you get up (yet).

Lower the weight as well, and obviously stretch before you actually squat.
Thanks, Fazc. I'm still working on ankle mobility constantly, which is a huge limiting factor I think.

I think I'll film every warm up set and have someone cue me to stay upright and tell me when I break from it.
