Setup instructions

1) Stand tall with the chest up and core tight.

2) Start with the barbell resting around your hips/thighs with an overhand grip - wider than shoulder width apart.

Perform instructions

1) Hinge forward from the hips slightly and push your tailbone back.

2) Thrust the hips forward and lift your heels up from the ground - use this momentum to bring the barbell up above your head. Pause at the top.

3) Now, reverse the movement by moving the bar forward which will cause the barbell to swing down. Follow the momentum and aim for the bar to make contact with your thighs.

4) Repeat.
