Exercise execution guide

Starting position

Standing with the bar resting on your upper chest and deltoids. Grasp the bar with your hands for a good support. Keep your head straight.

Execution

Bend your knees and hips as if you were sitting down. While keeping your back straight, let your buttocks go backwards, which will tilt your chest slightly forwards to make the movement as natural as possible. The moment your thighs are parallel to the ground, move upwards, doing the movement in the opposite direction. To protect your knees, make sure they don't go beyond the axis of your toes. Given the complexity of this movement, ask a trainer in your gym to show you how to perform it correctly the first time.
