Complete this exercise using a Safety Squat Bar (SSB). The SSB shown here is called a Transformer Bar (designed by Kabuki Strength).
Key Points:
1) Descend into a squat using a hip hinge motion in a controlled manner, be sure to maintain a strong core while doing so.
2) The shins should stay vertical the entire time, think about pushing the hips back.
3) Lower into a squat until your thighs are parallel with the floor (use a box or bench that is approximately the same height as your knees).
4) Slightly rock back, while in contact with the bench and emphasize pushing the hips forward to stand back up. This motion should place a emphasis on the hamstring muscles
5) IMPORTANT: Maintain tension throughout this lift, at no point should you disengage your core or lower leg muscles.
