This allows us to drop to a greater depth and thus lift a heavier weight.[/vc_column_text][us_separator type=”invisible”][vc_column_text]

Points Of Performance

  • Stand on feet with hip-width apart
  • Dumbbells rest on the shoulders
  • Elbows slightly in front of the body in level with the shoulders
  • Torso dips straight down
  • Hips and legs extend rapidly then press under
  • Receive the dumbbells in a lunge position
  • Heels stay down until hips and legs extend
  • Bring feet together, one foot at a time
