Progressions & Variations

Tips

Avoid rounding your back throughout the movement. Focus on keeping your chest up and your back flat.

Avoid bouncing the plates for the next rep. Instead, reset after each rep and let the bar come to a dead stop.

Keep your head inline with the rest of your body and avoid overarching at the neck.
