Progressions & Variations

Tips

Avoid muscling the weight up with your upper body. The majority of the power should come from your lower body.

Be sure to complete the movement in one fluid motion rather than breaking it up into parts.

Do not allow your upper back to round during the movement. Keep your chest tall and your shoulders pulled back to prevent injury.
