Stand up straight about 2 to 3 feet in front of a flat bench while holding a barbell with both hands and the handle across the back of your shoulders. Your feet should be hip width away from each other. Your toes must be pointing out and keep your head up, chest up and back straight.
Place one foot on top of the bench with your other leg on the floor. This is your starting position.
Slowly lower the barbell by bending your knees and hips at the same time. Keep your back and upper body straight as you descend. Continue until your hamstrings are touching your calves. Inhale as you do this.
Pause for a moment then slowly raise the barbell by extending your hips and knees at the same time. Continue until you’re back to your starting position. Exhale as you do this.
