How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) To begin this exercise; start off with a weighted barbell rested on blocks right in front of your shins with a overhand grip.

2.) Bend down at the knees with your back straight, chest out, head facing forward and pull up on the barbell with the driving force from your heels.

3.) Extend out through your knees and hips in a jumping motion to push the bar upward.

4.) Most of the force should be driven through the initial momentum from the legs and hips with a slight pull from your arms.

5.) When you are full extended and upright, flex you arms with your elbows and pull yourself down allowing the barbell to roll up your forearms and rest on your palms and shoulder in a full squat position.

6.) Keep yourself in the full squat position until you have full control of the barbell.

7.) Then push yourself up with your heels into an upright position keeping your back straight and chest out.

8.) Repeat this exercise for as many repetitions as needed
