    He's well below parallel, the top posted video is closer to a 1/4 its close to parallel but still on the topside of the spectrum

    There's no way I'll go below parallel on a low bar to conform to the bandwagon phrase of the day "ATG or else...." My lower back is more important and human mechanics and physics dictate that 300# on a rounded back looking for extension is a bad idea.

    Would you consider this parallel?

    I use 3 inch elastic bands and wrap it around my hamstrings. Then I sit right down and open your hips to each side this is with the band fixed or tied to something. Also with the band wrap it around one leg and lunge forward keeping your torso straight and allow the band to open your hip backwards. Also foam rolling I find helps a lot with mobility. This should help a lot.

    Your hips are your weakest link in the chain. It will improve over time. As Shadowz mentioned, stretching, roller are your best friend

    as said previously Mobility in hips and also the ankles

    check out the following videos in the article for more mobility

    Squatting deep is cool, but what's even cooler is squatting properly. If you're dead set on squatting ass-to-grass, that's fine, but make sure you're doing the necessary work to do it right. Include both mobility and stability work specific to the squat as well as hammering your technique. And, if you're a competitive lifter, remember that there aren't any style points for going deeper!

    Get feet closer together. You're restricting your mobility ( \ / )
    Right back leg is back further then other leg. Square them up

    Its hard to tell but since your heals are so spread apart your knees are almost coming in when your lifting up, you want your knees to be pushing out while lifting up.

    Drive your elbows up more, really emphasize on driving them to the roof. Helps with keeping bar center and allows you to drive harder.

    I'll give that a shot later on tonight, for the wider stance, I've used it as a crutch to assist in opening my hips. But I should give it a shot with a closer stance.

    No need to do that. When you're in the hole, the process of pushing up and out (with your knees) will force your hips to open.

    When I talk about pushing out with your knees its not physically trying to push them out as far as possible, its keeping in line with your foot direction and its basically your gluts that fire that keep your knees from collapsing in. (you don't want any of that its just asking for an injury)
