- Feet under the hips (like stepping into a vertical jump)
- Slight bend in the knees
- Hands right outside the legs (in the pockets)
- Chest out and shoulder blades pulled tightly together
- By pushing your hips back you will slide the bar down the thighs. Go as far down the legs (roughly mid shin) while keeping your back tight.
- Be sure to keep your shoulder blades pulled tightly together the entire time and your head up to maintain a neutral spine.
