Exercise Instructions:

  1. Take a double overhand-grip of the bar, at about shoulder-width.
  2. Keep your toes pointing forward.
  3. Slight bend in the knee (name of exercise is misleading, yes).
  4. Focus on pushing your bum back, while keeping your back nice and tight (no rounding).
  5. Bottom of the rep is achieved when you feel your hamstrings stretching like a motherf**ker. This will be different for everyone, depending upon your own hamstring flexibility.
  6. From the bottom position, drive back up to the start point using the power in your glutes.

Muscles worked:

Hamstrings, glutes, lower back, forearms.
