- Position yourself under a barbell held by a squat rack. Keeping your elbows high, place your arms up and under the bar.
- The bar should be resting on the front of your shoulders. Core is tight. Back is flat. Keep your hands crossed.
- Maintaining control, lift the bar up. Bend your knees forward and allow your hips to bend back as if sitting down. Pause when thighs are parallel with the floor.
- Return to the starting position and repeat.
