SETUP: Take an overhand-grip of the bar. You’ll have to experiment with grip position based on your arm length, but a good rule of thumb for most people is to place your ring finger on the little marker the bar has in the knurling. Before you perform a rep, be sure to pin your shoulder blades back and puff your chest to maintain great posture.
REP: Brace your midsection by squeezing your glutes and driving your feet into the ground, then lower the bar towards your chest. Now drive your heels into the ground as you press it back to the start position.
TIP: At the bottom of a rep, your forearms should point directly up at 90 degrees, if not, you’re either too wide or too narrow.
