I am not a fan of touch and goes for a variety of reasons. With form checks especially, as most folks tend to lose form as they progress. That said, Weight looked too light, it is easy to maintain form if too light. You started with some form struggles, first, you should have smacked the girl texting as she walked across the platform as you are about to lift. Second you look a little tight in the posterior, some glute and ham work will help. Remember, you are standing up with the bar. Finally, it is okay to look at the bar while you set up. I felt like you were feeling around to find the bar and position for set up because you couldn't see anything. Wait, you were looking in a mirror weren't you? Still, set up is important, look at the bar and get set up.
