Bend over at a 45 degree angle and grip the EZ Bar at shoulder width apart with your palms facing up. Your back and neck should all be in a straight line and knees slightly bent. Your head should be facing forward as if looking into the horizon. This is your starting position.
Raise the bar up all the way until it almost touches your lower stomach. Then, release the weight back down to the starting position.
Repeat entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.
Perform this exercise in a smooth and fluid motion
Don't extended your arms completely on the downward portion of the movement; keep some tension in them

SPECIAL NOTES & LEVEL of DIFFICULTY VARIATIONS
To increase the level of difficulty, slow down the movement or load the EZ bar more.
This exercise is a very effective exercise for packing extra slabs of muscle onto your back. The EZ bar is a variation on the barbell. Thus, the grip is more comfortable and if you have problems with your wrists or forearms you may find the EZ especially soothing.
The important point to note regarding this exercise is that the posture of the body and position of the back is very important when executing this movement. Thus, make sure you follow the instructions above and get into the right position. Doing a few practice repetitions with the empty bar is a good idea because it will give you a better feel of the mechanics of the movement.
