sorry man i was buying time because I was exhausted and didnt want to cancel the vid to restart again :(

Ive been doing 8 rep full body lately for high sets and it's a killer but it does raise your strength and endurance up a lot. I will, however, switch back to 5 reps as soon as I feel my cns crash down. Heck I may even try a 2-3 rep scheme. Got any tips though?

don't worry about it, just thought it was kinda funny like "when's this guy actually gonna squat?"

for the rep ranges and stuff? Just do what you feel man if you are liking the 8 reps scheme stick with it, if you want to change to 5s or 3s or whatever then do it. There's no right or wrong answer, just pick a rep range and get stronger. I personally think upper/lower splits are superior to full body but that's just my opinion

As for your squat form I'm hardly an expert but it looked pretty solid to me - good depth, back straight, hips back etc.

Nice! The form looks safe. Just for a cue, drive the chest up when in the bottom, and keep the upper back thight, plus drive the elbows under the bar.

One thing I'm thinking is that you are wasting a lot of energy and effort having multiple short breaths between every rep. Is there a reason for this?

Actually ya, ever since I did the 20 rep breath squat where you pretty much gotta breathe in and out at least 3 times per rep, I kinda have been doing that ffor everything. Its been stuck in my mind and its hard to break the habit lol.
