Gym Equipment Needed
Set up a barbell on the floor and load the appropriate weights.
Walk up to the barbell and have the barbell over your mid foot. Assume a wide stance and point your toes out at about 45 degrees. You can go as wide as you want as long your shins are perpendicular to the floor at the starting position. While keeping your spine straight, hinge your hips back and bend your torso forward. Keep bending forward until your hands can grab the barbell. Pop your chest up and straighten your arms before you begin.
Take a big breath into your diaphragm and lift the barbell by thrusting your hip forward and straightening your legs. Squeeze your glutes at the top of the movement and lock out your knees. Slowly hinge your hips back and bend your torso forward. Lower the bar in a controlled manner until it touches the ground and keep the bar over your mid foot the entire time.
