HOW: Position a barbell in front of you on the ground over the middle of your feet. Find your “power stance” with your feet staggered roughly shoulder width apart. We will then stagger our foot by placing the toes of one foot should in line with the middle of the other foot. Grip the bar slightly wider than your knees, keep some tension in your legs with your knees bent, squeeze your shoulder blades back, push into the ground with your feet and lift the bar up to your waist.
FEEL: You should feel your lower body muscles working as well as your glutes and back.
COMPENSATION: Keep your back flat, don’t arch it. Control the weight going up and down.
