Put 135 on the bar, and let’s do this. This weight is a little bit heavier, so make sure you focus on keeping good form. Explode from your butt and hips.
Your weight should be evenly distributed across your feet.
If this is too heavy, take the weight down a notch. Remember that you’ll get there. Just keep on working.
