Barbell Squats (rear)

Muscle Groups Worked:

Calves Quadricep Hamstring

How to Perform This Exericse:

1) Start with your legs shoulder width apart, feet facing forward, with your arms grabbing the bar behind your back at a comfortable distance away from your shoulders.  The bar should be along your traps, spanning from shoulder to shoulder.

2) Slowly lower your body until your butt touches your calves/heels or until you cannot lower it further.  Your heels should come off the floor in this position.

3) Keeping your core tight (Your abs and back), return to the start position.


Do not swing your back forward or bend it forward.  Keep your shoulders above your heels, your shoulders should not move toward the front/back/sides of your body, they should only move in an upward and downward motion
