The barbells can weigh 60-100 lbs for this workout. Keep your grip slightly wider than the regular shoulder-width grip.

Tips

  • Choose the weight that suits your fitness level. Start using lesser weights if you are not comfortable with lifting heavier barbells.
  • Do not bend forward to prevent rounding your back. Keep your back straight throughout the exercise.
