Can't pinch cranks for barspins at ALL

Hello everyone. I have this problem, where I can't get myself to pinch my crank with my heel for barspins. I literally only pinch the seat. The problem starts when I jump to start the barspin, I put too much pressure on my back foot, making my cranks spin backwards. Because of that, I can't keep my front foot at a 90 degree angle with my leg. For this reason I extend my foot, and can't pinch the crank at all. I have a video so you can see what actually happens:


It's annoying because I started trying my first barspins back in September last years and still haven't "mastered" it right, even though I can land it and roll away. I even thought about stop doing barspins at all...
Any tips?

Hahah, thanks man. But still I feel like the way I bar wouldn't be good enough to do it from bigger shit just because it feels like it's not stable enough...

Plenty of people don’t pinch anything. Repetition is key with pretty much everything

Did you just start landing them? Because that one looked great to me. Just keep at it, I'm sure it'll become more comfortable.

I've been able to barspin since like 2001, and mine don't even look that good.
