Like I said before, working on form never stops, it evolves. Brute strength will only take you so far.
I'm not in their league, but I will add that before every heavy squat, with the bar on my back, I am thinking about my ques. My wife will also say I constantly parrot "use good form, trust your form" before the big lifts.

I'm always amazed at the times I read about someone's excellent numbers on a deadlift or squat only for them to place up a vid which I dread watching through as I wonder how on earth they haven't done themselves loads of physical damage; these days, when I see numbers, though it means something, I dont necessarily consider it great, in the same sense unless I know the person has good form as well.

I'm talking basic trainees here who still have lots of potential but crap form not powerlifters whose form understandably breaks down under near ultimate loads etc.
