- Place a barbell into the core trainer, followed by the desired weight. Holding the barbell with both hands with a neutral grip (palms facing inwards) in front of your chest, plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position. Inhale and brace your core. Looking straight ahead, bend at both the hips and knees, ensuring that your knees remain in line with your toes. Continue bending your knees until your upper legs are parallel with the floor. Ensure that your torso remains as upright as possible. You should feel tension in your glutes.
- Exhale and push through your heels, using your quads and glutes to extend your hips and knees to return to the starting position. At the same time, extend your elbows to press the end of the barbell above your head. Inhale and bend your elbows to lower the barbell and return to the starting position. Use your momentum from lowering the barbell to continue into the next repetition. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
