MOVE FOUR: Barbell Back Squat
> Stand upright in front of the barbell so that it is resting across your shoulders and behind your neck. Your feet should be hip-width apart and your toes naturally turned out.
> Slowly lower down toward a fully squatted position – Think of this as trying to sit on a stool right behind you.
> Keep your weight balanced between the balls of your feet and your heels as you go down.
> Push your chest out very slightly in front of you to counterbalance the heavy load on your heels.
> When your thighs are parallel to the floor, you will have reached the full depth of the squat.
> Reverse motion and drive up through your feet to return to the starting position.Back to top
