Step 1

• Start with the bar overhead in a wide grip, arms at full extension, and your feet shoulder-width apart, this is your starting position. • Brace your core and ensure you maintain a neutral spine as your hips descend back and down until your hips are lower than your knees. • Stand up so that your knees, arms and hips are at full extension. • Keep your heels down throughout the movement. • You should feel tension in your traps, shoulders and quads.
