OLYMPIC-BAR SQUAT

Health & Fitness - - Workout -

Set the bar­bell on the squat rack at chin height. Stand un­der the bar so it rests com­fort­ably on your shoul­ders. Place your hands on the bar in an over­hand grip (palms away) slightly wider than your shoul­ders. Stand tall and re­lease the bar­bell from the squat rack. Take a small step with your feet slightly fur­ther than shoul­der­width apart. This is your start­ing po­si­tion (A). In­hale. Look­ing ahead, bend at the hips and knees, keep­ing your knees in line with your toes, un­til your thighs are par­al­lel with the floor (B). En­sure your back stays within a 45o to 90o an­gle to your hips. Ex­hale as you push through your heels and ex­tend your legs to re­turn to the start­ing po­si­tion. Do as many reps as you can in 20 sec­onds.
