    Begin by placing a barbell in the center of a flat surface.

    Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart and toes slightly turned out.

  • 3

    Bend your knees and hinge at the hips until your torso is parallel to the floor.

  • 4

    Place your hands on the bar, slightly wider than your shoulders.

  • 5

    Push your hips back and unhinge to bring your torso back to an upright position.

  • 6

    With your chest tall and core engaged, drive through your heels and pull the bar up, making sure to keep it close to your body.

  • 7

    Once the bar passes your knees, thrust your hips forward and stand tall.

  • 8

    Lock out the knees and hips, then slowly lower the bar back to the ground.

  • 9

    Reset your feet and repeat the movement.
