  1. Start by lying flat on your back on a yoga mat. Bend your knees and position your feet firmly on the mat, ensuring that they are hip-width apart and your spine is in a neutral position. Lay a barbell across your hip bones, holding it with an overhand grip (palms facing towards your body). This is your starting position.
