Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width, with your toes pointed forward. Grasp the bar just wider than the knees with palms facing up. Keep your spine straight, shoulder blades pulling down and back, chest lifted and head in line with your spine. Your heels should be on the floor.
Exhale. Lift the bar off the floor by simultaneously straightening your hips and knees to a 3/4 upright position where the barbell rests midway on your thigh with your arms straight. This is the starting position. Inhale.
Exhale again and slowly pull the bar toward your torso, contracting your lats, until it touches your abdomen. Maintain a rigid spine without any movement or change in the shape in your back. Keep both feet firmly planted on the floor while maintaining a slight bend in the knees and hips.
Inhale and slowly lower the bar back to the starting position while maintaining your back, hip, knee, and foot position. Keep the shoulder blades squeezing together and the abdominal muscles engaged. Repeat.
At the end of the set, bend the hips and knees to lower the bar to the floor.
