  • With a wooden dowel or barbell resting across both shoulders, plant both feet on the floor hip-width apart. Draw your shoulder blades down and back to push your chest out slightly. This is your starting position.

  • Inhale. Bend your knees slightly and set this as a fixed angle. Without changing the angle of your knees, hinge forward from your hips. Ensure that you maintain a proud chest and that your head is an extension of your spine. You should feel tension in your hamstrings (back of your legs).

  • Exhale. Push through your heels and, using your glutes and hamstrings, extend your hips to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
