General And Specifics

  • a partner should help you with this exercise

Starting Position

  • your partner passes you the barbell, take it with over hand grip a bit wider than shoulder width
  • to prevent injuries, make sure that the weight does not break out
  • your elbows need to remain vertically under the barbell
  • bend your knees, then you can put the feet on the ground to stabilize your body

Correct Execution

  • let the weight sink down slowly until your triceps touches the ground
  • do not bend your wrists
  • keep your body braced and avoid a hollow-back
  • push the barbell up again
  • your elbows still need to remain vertically under the barbell
  • repeat the barbell exercise
