Setup instructions

1) In standing position, slightly bend your knees and widen your stance. Tuck in your elbows and hold the barbell close to your chest. Face the elbows down.

Perform instructions

1) Hinge at the hips and have a slight bend at the knees.

2) Descend into a squat position but only go half way. Keeping your back flat and head neutral, push through the heels to standing and perform an overhead press. During this movement, make sure your elbows are facing forward and the movement is explosive. It should be done in one action.

3) Complete each movement in reverse until you come to the starting position.

4) Repeat.
