General And Specifics

  • beginners should start without weights to get a feeling for this compound free weights exercise
  • do not at all get started with a too heavy weight
  • the spine could get overcharged: for instance Spinal disc herniation

Starting Position

  • your shins are close to the barbell
  • feet in hip width distance
  • get into the squat position
  • place your hands next to the outside of your knees around the barbell
  • the shoulders are in a vertical line above the barbell
  • the sight is turned up a bit

Correct Execution

  • brace your entire body
  • pull the shoulder blades together and push the chest forwards
  • be sure that the pressure is on your heels
  • guide the barbell up with strength, stay close to the shins (the hip moves forwards a bit)
  • your back has to be straight in any case
  • hold the position for a short moment
  • then let the barbell sink slowly, close to shins
  • if you want to, practise this exercise without the barbell touching the ground
