  • Rest the bar on the back of your shoulders.
  • Stand looking forward with torso upright, core braced and hips square to your body, resting your back foot on bench. Your leading leg should be half a metre or so in front of bench.
  • Lower until your front thigh is almost horizontal, keeping your knee in line with your foot.
  • Don't let your front knee travel beyond your toes.
