How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start off setting up a weighted barbell with the amount of weight that you would like to perform.

2.) Position the barbell on your shoulders with an overhand wide shoulder width grip just as in a regular squat position.

3.) Slowly squat down towards the floor about 12 inches, not as much as a regular squat, and hold for a count.

4.) Return back up to the starting position.

5.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
