Try forcing your knees outwards during the squat, ive found it keeps my whole posterior chain tight and allows me to accelerate out of the bottom faster than if my knees buckle inwards. It might be the source of your weakness at the bottom of each rep as your hip drive will be affected by your knees going inwards.

point taken greg, i have noticed that if i look at it..i think my first 2 sets are usually harder than my third, because in my mind they are supposed to be easier, therefore I dont think I am putting enough mental thought into keeping everything tight and exploding the rep out of the bottom portion...my third set i usually dont have the knee problem because I have more focus and do exactly what you said...i also have to constantly remind myself that squatting is just like a form tackle in football, need to drive my hips thru the movement and not rely solely on my leg muscles

Good work on that deadlift. This is looks like a pretty successful routine for you. Glad the recovery is going smoothly. Keep at it
