Starting Position: Grab a barbell and stand straight up holding the barbell with the overhand grip shoulder width apart. Bend at the waist so that the weight is hanging towards the ground as your arms are extended. You back should be close to parallel to the ground. Keep you head up and back straight. Keep your legs relatively straight through the lift.
Performing the Exercise: Without changing your position raise the bar towards chest and slowly release it down.
- Your back should remain straight and head up facing forward
- Use a controlled motion when lifting the weight. Focus on using your back muscles to lift the weight
