- Stand straight. Feet are shoulder-width apart. Hold a barbell behind you at arms length. A medium grip (arms are shoulder-width apart, palms facing back) is best for this exercise. You can use wrist wraps for a better grip. This will be your starting position.
- Keep your head up. Inhaling, start to squat until your upper thighs are parallel to the floor.
- Exhaling, go back up to the starting position pressing with the feet and squeezing the thighs.
- Perform for the required amount of repetitions.
Tip: You can also perform this exercise with a small block under the heels of your foot. This helps beginners or those who lack the flexibility to perform the exercise correctly.
