Squats...improved but your knees still look like they are facing forward. This will limit your ability to hit depth, and can lead to anterior chain dominant squats which can contribute/lead to knee injuries/issues.

You want your toes pointed out about 20-30 degrees and your knee angle to follow your toe angle, something like this:



Bench Press...Improved. Right now you need to work on setting up with a tight back. Imagine you're trying to squeeze your lats together and hold something between them. Next, arch your lower back a little, and think about driving your hips towards your lats. This will help build a more stable benching platform.

Good work. Nice improvements.
