I understand what Ripp is saying about the hip drive first. So long as your concentrating and not going heavier than your ready for you should stay in control of the weight. I think I would tend to fall forward if I started looking at the floor.
Glad to see i'm not the only one who does this, and I wouldn't look in mirror except its right in front of me keep my head up and look slightly up

I look towards the sky because that is what our junior high coaches drilled into our brains in the 7th grade

Straight ahead with my eyes up, not so much my head staring into the cold black heart of the head judge or d-bags bro pressingly in my gym on the loser benches across hte squat rack where it takes a team effort to row and imaginary 5 board press 225lbs for reps. Always away from the mirror.

I look at my own ugly mug in the mirror, with a slight head tilit up. I find that helps to keep from leaning forward too far. The rack I use at my gym is right in front of a mirror wall, and at home I have a mirror I stick in front of me. I find the look of pain and struggle actually motivates me to get that damn weight up, again and again. Then some more...

I look straight ahead, not up or down. Also, away from the mirror.
