At thigh level, hold a barbell with your palms facing your body, slightly wider than shoulder width and keep a slight bend in the knees. Then, bend only at the hips and lower the weight. Drag the bar down the front of your legs and continue to push your hips back to keep the bar close to your body. Lower the bar to mid-shin keeping your low back tight and arched. Do not round your lower back forward in order to lower the weight further.
