KEY COACHING POINTS:

  • Slowly control yourself down (using the hamstrings to slow you down)

  • Make sure you DON'T arch the lower back

  • Press up by pushing off the ground then engaging the hamstrings to take you the rest of the way up

  • Squeeze at the top to achieve a maximum contraction of the hamstrings and glutes

  • Your knee, hips and shoulders should form a straight line through the full range of motion
