How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) This is a variation of the regular squat in which rather than squatting till your thighs are parallel with the floor, you squat down as low as you possibly can letting your glutes and hamstrings get more into the exercise.

2.) Start off by setting up a weighted barbell with the amount of weight that you would like to perform for this exercise.

3.) Then position the bar on your shoulder blades with an overhand shoulder width grip just as in a regular squat position.

4.) Bend at your knees and slowly lower yourself towards the ground, squatting down as far as possible and squeezing your squads.

5.) Hold for a count then return back up to the starting position.

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