Barbell Hack Squats
- Begin by placing a loaded barbell behind you. Place two 25 lb plates under the back of your feet. Tighten your core and straighten your lower back.
- Slowly squat down, getting a good grip on the barbell behind you. Check to make sure your posture is still perfect and balanced.
- Stand up while holding the barbell behind. Use your heels to drive yourself back up. Do not straighten your knees at the top.
- Slowly lower yourself back down, driving your hips behind you. Repeat the movement.
