Instructional Video


Written Instructions

  1. Stand with feet shoulder width apart, bend forward to around 45 degrees, keeping back straight and knees slightly bent.
  2. Hold the barbell down so your arms are extended below your shoulder, shoulder width apart with an overhand grip so that your palms are facing backwards.
  3. Keeping the back straight, drive the elbows back so the bar comes towards your ribs.
  4. Keep elbows pinned to the side of the body, and squeeze the back muscles to bring the barbell up.
  5. Once you’ve reached the top of the movement, gradually lower the barbell back down to the starting position.
