    Muscles worked: Hamstrings, Glutes, Lower back

    Instructions:
    Place a barbell on the floor at your feet. Keep your feet together or slightly apart for more comfortability. Bend over and grab the barbell at a shoulder width apart grip. With your knees bent, slowly stand up until your knees are slightly bent and the bar rest at arm's length across your upper thighs. Next, keeping your knees slightly bent, bend forward at the waist as far as possible. When you have gone down as far as you can, return to the upright position and repeat.
    Note:It is important to keep your knees slightly bent and your back straight at all times. This will keep your hamstrings isolated and your back protected. A box or some kind of platform is sometimes needed when using heavier poundage. This makes sure you are getting a full range of motion.
    Dont's:
    Don't use extremely heavy weight. It is not necessary, use moderate weight. Heavy weight can cause lower back injuries.
