With a hip width stance, place the barbell across the back of your shoulders, and grasp it with an overhand grip.
While maintaining a natural arch in your back, and keeping your torso upright, lower your body into a squat, by bending at your hips, then knees, until your thighs reach parallel to the ground or deeper depending on your mobility.
Rise back up to standing by pressing the entire platform of your feet through the ground.
