That's over and beyond what'll I'll be able for a long while, but I agree with you on the form. Only problem I see is your back is rounding somewhat. Lower the weight to around 495-515 and rep with that. Great work though!

MUCH stronger than me so I don't know if I'm qualified to comment. However, I think your back rounding on the later reps may be what caused you not to pull that last one. fighting to pull the weight up when you're bent forward like that can't be much fun! Even still, amazing lifts.

The form is all around sloppy, too much hip action before the bar comes off the ground. I really need to work on driving them forward hard when I get about half way up.

The back rounding is there, however I am actually trying to round my upper back slightly as it shortens the stroke for the lift.

I still have issues with this as my left shoulder doesn't like when I do this ever since I dislocated it several years back.
