Initial position

Place the bar on the floor in front of you. Legs shoulder width apart. Bend over and take the bar approximately at the same width. Note: If you have problems with the lower back, do not do this exercise.

Basic movement

Knees slightly bent, lift the bar until the torso is parallel to the floor.

Note: To protect your back, be as careful as possible, do the exercise correctly and do not overdo it with weight.

Final position

Pull the crossbar straight to the chest, then lower it. Do not allow the rod to touch the floor.
