You need to master this movement before moving on to deadlifts and romanian deadlifts
- Engage postural cues
- Screw feet into the floor (you should feel knees stabilise and bum tightened further)
- Hold stick in contact with lower back, mid back and head throughout movement.
- Keeping load above mid-foot and chin tucked in, push hips backwards. You should feel and stretch in the back of your legs. Back should remain straight.
- When you feel the back of leg stretch begin squeezing bum tight and push back to standing posture.
