Place loaded bar on rack below shoulder level. Step under & grab bar with a wide pronated grip. Bar should rest on upper chest. Lift off rack & step back into a split stance. Slightly flex the hips & knees, keeping torso erect. Immediately follow with a, push moving bar from shoulders. Repeat this movement for all presses and then step up and lower the bar to your chest. Walk forward and re-rack weight.
