Muscle women – female bodybuilders

Starting Position: To reduce the chance of lower back injury, we recommend using a weight belt for this exercise. Rest a barbell on the upper portion of your back, not your neck. Firmly grip the bar with your hands almost twice your shoulder width apart. Position your feet on a heel raise so that the balls of your feet are resting on the floor and your heels are elevated.Your feet should be about shoulder-width apart, with your toes pointing slightly outward and knees over the toes.

The Exercise: Keeping your back as straight as possible and your chin up, bend your knees and slowly lower your hips straight down until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Once you reach the bottom position, press the weight up from your heels. Inhale on the way down and exhale on the way up.
