- The bar should be positioned behind your head high along the top of your shoulders toward the base of your neck.
- Raise your body slightly to un-rack the bar, then straightening your hips and knees to lift the bar.
- Take a step backward and bring your feet to shoulder-width apart. Your toes pointed forward.
- Downward Phase: Begin this phase by hinging at the hips, shifting them back and down. As you lower your hips, yours knees bend and will start to shift forward slowly. You must keep your knees and toes in line.
- Lower yourself until your thighs are 90 degrees with your calves.
- Upward Phase: Exhale and return to start position by pushing your feet into the floor through your heels.
