Barbell Squat Pulse

Step 1

Safely place a barbell on your shoulders. Please read the barbell safety cues for instructions on how to do this. Plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder width apart. Looking straight ahead, bend at both the hips and knees, ensuring that your knees remain in line with your toes. Continue bending your knees until your upper legs are parallel with the floor. Ensure that your back remains between 45 and 90 degrees of your hips. This is called full squat position.

Step 2

Push through your heels and extend your legs slightly.

Step 3

Bend your knees again to return to full squat position. Continue this pulse action for the specified number of repetitions.
