For what looks like a low bar squat, you seem to be prioritizing “chest up” over hip drive out of the bottom. Seems to be working for you, but just a thought. Kelly would say to straighten your feet more, screw them into the ground hard at the top while squeezing your butt, and drive into that tension the whole way through. This is the reason he drills this “hip torque” concept; a staple hip means a stable low back, which means a stable spine.

Those are thoughts though, no solutions. Squats looked pretty solid to me!
