Trainer’s Tips

  • Avoid overarching your back at the top of the movement. Focus on maintaining a neutral spine throughout the exercise.
  • Avoid letting your weight shift onto your forefoot. Push through your heel during the exercise.
  • Keep your hips up throughout the entire exercise. Aim for a straight line between your shoulders and knees.
