Main muscles worked: Quads, glutes

How to perform this exercise?

  • Place the bar on the upper part of your back where it lays comfortably and you feel strong
  • Find a stance that is comfortable and that allows you sit down properly
  • Sit down until your thighs are horizontal (or slightly below), then push yourself up again
  • Keep your knees in line with your toes during the entire movement

Note: Try to maintain an upright position when sitting down. Don’t place the bar too high as this will put you in an uncomfortable position and cause you to lean a lot forward when adding some weight to the bar.
