Setup instructions

2) Grab the bar with the palms facing down (overhand grip). Place your forearms on your legs and allow the palms to hang towards the floor - the wrist and knee should have contact.

Perform instructions

2) Pause at the top. Now, gently lower the weight back down to the starting position.
