1) Get your head down. Look at the floor a little infront of you. This will eliminate that first spinal bend.
2) Drop your hips, you're going to round your back anyway so why not use it to your advantage from the start? Drop your hips and start with a rounded upper back, this will allow you to start with your knees forward and your quads in a position where they can help get the bar off the floor. Brace your abs and hold it.
3) Begin the lift by holding the same back angle and driving from your legs. Then straight out.
4) Get a new camera man.
