How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Hold the barbell on the back of your shoulders as you stand up straight while keeping your feet shoulder width apart.

2.) Leave your head up and your back straight; bend down at the waist to the right side as much as possible.

3.) As you bend down, breathe in and clench on your abdominals, holding on the position for a few seconds, come back up to the starting position exhaling on the way up.

4.) Repeat steps 1 and 2 but to the left side, followed by repeating for the amount of repetitions you desire.
