Get in front of the loaded barbell and place your feet a bit wider than your shoulder width. Grab the barbell with your palms at shoulder-width apart and get ready for the initial lift. This is your starting position.
As you lift the weight, imagine that you are pushing away the floor with your legs rather than lifting with your back and legs. Keep your back straight, butt out and head looking into the horizon. As you go up, keep the barbell close to your body (the barbell may slide and come in contact with your legs as you lift - this is normal). Once you are at the top, extend your body straight and hold the weight there for a fraction of a second.
Then, lower the barbell back down to the starting position. On the way down, keep your back straight still and head up looking into the horizon.
Finally, repeat the entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.
Perform this exercise in a smooth and fluid motion
Keep your back straight, butt sticking out and head up looking into the horizon at all times
Never jerk the weight nor release the barbell down too fast as it may result in injury
