comment Do short Achilles tendons disturb my squatting?
Also hang in there, I too suffer from heels coming off the ground, but my form sucks and I've been practising just the bar for many months. Look into other exercises that help strengthen and condition squat form techniques.

comment As a hardgainer, how do I get the right balance of calories to add size without adding fat?
@Nick - Sure, they do do their job well (putting on mass) but nothing that cant be achieved with eating real food to get those calories up. The biggest gripe I have about them is in every 24g of protein served its usually a mix of casein, egg and whey. Sometimes you really only want whey protein!

Na thats cool man I appreciate constructive criticism, I realise my form is pretty shit lol. Ironic thing is, I'm on the starting strength workout! I like that RX videos you linked, I'll watch those. But looking at my videos its interesting you say its little to do with my heels? what do you think my biggest problem is? my hips? weak lower back?

Hey guys added the videos finally, see what you think, I'm pretty convinced its my heels though, clearly see my form improves once plates are under my heels.

@Barbie - I think I liked this answer this most, that link you gave to stretching and also this improving ankle mobility on same website will be great to try out today. I'm also going to try and get a vid up just incase you guys think its not my ankle/heel thats causing my crappy form issues.
