Well brah,you has the same problem i do.Work on some flexibility in the hips and ankles,knees go in.Maybe play with your stance width.Keep your back tight.Keep everything as tense as possible.

Lots of GM-ing and back rounding...

Agree with Elite...try a wider stance

Focus on chest/head up...try to have shoulders raise as fast as hips

Good strength, but reduce weight and focus on form for a little while

Some good points made above. Overall, pretty good, a bit of a seated good morning as you start back up out of the hole. Remember it is a drive up through the hips not a bending of the back to start up. IMHO, your stance looks fine, you may have a slight collapse of the knees as you head down, think about sitting down in between them (this will push them out a bit as you head down) rather than just going up and down. If your knees are falling in a bit, you will lose your ability to drive up, that can often lead to the good morning like start. I have seen far worse, great job! Keep working on them.

Descent looked good.

You don't have the quads to ascend the way you descend. So I'd work on that.

Overall pretty solid.

I don't have the quads either. How can we work on those? I / we want to get better.

If you can get into that position on the descent it isn't a flexibility problem. Do it right and just drill the movement over and over again.
