To me it seems you are sitting straight down and not back. You should be sitting back more and then driving straight up.

From what I know now, sit back just a tad more and push the knees out.

Thats the first think that I was told when I went to WS to get my form fixed. I was sitting down and not back. It makes a big difference. And by sitting back, its almost as if you fall back onto the box, not sit down and slide back. Also, your shins will be | not \ .

There was another guy on here asking about his squats a while back.... he was squatting on a cooler i believe. He needed to sit back as well.

What do you mean by rolling? Rolling when your hips break?

I actually have a clip on my PC somewhere from one of WS seminars where Louie thoroughly explains the box squat and there is a demo on how to do it from all the sides. I can try to find it and upload it if you guys want.
