Techniques

To perform the Squat with barbell safely, please follow these steps:
  1. Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart, pointing your toes outwards slightly
  2. The bar should be resting on your trapezius muscles (between your shoulders and neck) and not on your neck/spine
  3. Slowly lower your bum towards the ground as if you were going to sit on a chair, dont bring the knees forward too much
  4. You should go down as far as you can manage without your knees going further forward than your toes
  5. Slowly raise your body back up again until you are standing straight
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 until you can no longer maintain correct technique
