Muscle Group: Back

This is an advanced exercise for experienced lifters. Here we work the lower back in isolation.

  1. Standing with feet 6-8 inches apart, rest a barbell on your traps and shoulders just like you would with a squat.
  2. Lock your legs and keep your back straight, bend forward from the waist, until your upper body is about parallel to the floor, make sure that your head is up during this movement.
  3. Hold for a pause, then come back up to the starting position.
