BARBELL BENCH PRESS
Lie on the bench and level the eyes with the barbell and place the feet flat on the floor. Place the heel of the palm on the bar in a position that lets the elbow joint sit at a 90 degree angle.
BARBELL FRONT SQUAT
Place hands on bar slightly wider than shoulder width. Walk forward so that the bar rests on the deltoids (not the wrists!) as the elbows bend and point forward. Stand up with the bar and take 2 small steps back.
With the feet hip to shoulder width apart step up to the bar so that it is touching the shins. Grab the bar on the outside of the legs with fingers one direction and the thumb around the other direction.
BARBELL BACK SQUATS
Place hands on the bar at the tightest width that can be handled when the bar is on your back. Lean forward and level eyes with the bar. Duck the head under the bar and place the bar right above the spinus process of the scapula or the meaty part of the trapezius.
