It looks like all back. Don't worry, we all do that at some point. The first time I pulled 500 I looked just like your video. For some reason this thought of using the bar to pull yourself down into position almost automatically forces your hips to hinge correctly. The hip hinge is the key to using all the muscles of the posterior chain in a deadlift, especially the hamstrings.
