Coach's Tips

It is a good workout for your back muscle development, as the muscles in the back of your body can be highly involved while withstanding heavy weights. It is a crucial workout if you want to have perfect back muscles!

How to

Starting Position

1. Stand with feet hip-width apart and the barbell on the ground in front of your feet. 2. Bend your hips and knees to lower your body towards the bar, while keeping your back flat. 3. Grip the barbell with an overhand grip, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. 4. Push your chest forward and look slightly up.

Proper Form

1. Take a deep breath and brace your core. 2. Lift the barbell by driving your feet through the ground and extending your hips and knees until you are standing upright. 3. Keep the bar close to your body and your arms straight. 4. Once you have reached the top, hold the position for a moment.

Breathing Technique

1. Take a deep breath before you start the lift. 2. Exhale as you lift the barbell. 3. Inhale at the top of the lift.

Precautions

1. Keep your back flat and your core engaged throughout the entire lift. 2. Do not round your back or use momentum to lift the barbell. 3. Avoid jerking or bouncing the weight off the ground. 4. Make sure to use a weight that is appropriate for your level.
