1. Pick up a barbell in an overhand grip with your hands shoulder-width apart...(Always remember to lift any weight from the floor with your legs and not your back)...
  2. Stand straight, holding the barbell at arms' length in front of you...
  3. Place your feet directly below your hips, slowly lowering the barbell vertically downward...Don't bend at the knees...Keep your back straight and your chin up...
  4. Descend until the weight passes below knee level and you feel your hamstring muscles stretch...Do not allow the weight to touch the floor...
  5. At the bottom, contract your hamstrings and glutes to lift the weight back to the start position...

  6. ***This specific exercise is not best utilized for people with extremely weak core muscles or who have been diagnosed with chronic back issues***
