Tips

  • You may use a thumbless grip to eliminate the risks of wrist and elbow injuries.
  • As you squat down, do not push your knees out excessively. Make sure that they are roughly over the second toe of your feet.
  • You may place a 10 lb plate under the heels to minimize any ankle mobility issue caused by your torso tilting forward.
