Start with the barbell on the ground, stand with the feet wide. Bending at the hips lower down and grip the bar making sure the arms are directly below the shoulders in between the legs. Next lower the hips while looking forward and making sure the head and chest are up. Driving through the floor keep the weight in the heels of the feet and extend through the hips and knees. As the bar comes above the knees lean back and drive the hips into the bar while bringing your shoulder blades together. To lower the weight back down bend at the hips and with control lower down.
