2.) Grab the bar with a shoulder width grip then lift the bar up off of the ground and this will be your starting position.

3.) Take the bar and raise it up towards you chest using a controlled motion and continue until the bar is almost touching your lower chest.

4.) Hold this position for a few seconds, squeezing your back muscles and then lower the bar back to the starting position.
