Initial position

Face the bar that lies on the floor, feet at a width of 40 cm. Sit down and take the bar, arms slightly wider than the width of the legs.

Note: Before lifting the bar, make sure that you keep your back and shoulders straight, and do not tilt them forward. My head is up. Use light weights.

Basic movement

Keep your shoulders and elbows in a closed position, stand straight, using when lifting the muscles of the hips and back. Note: The head is looking straight ahead. Do not look down. So you round your back and you can get injured.

Final position

Slowly lower to the starting position. Note: Monitor the movement of the rod. No need to throw it on the floor, as do some powerlifters.
