Grab the bar with an overhand grip that's about double shoulder-width. Stand holding the bar down in front of you at arm's length and resting on your thighs. Your feet are shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Your eyes are focused straight ahead.

Slowly bend at the waist as you lower the bar just below your knees. During the move, do not bend your knees any more than they were bent in the starting position. Keep your head and chest up and your back straight.

Lift your torso back to the starting position, always keeping the bar as close to your body as possible.
