This exercise teaches the proper technique for bending and picking up a weight or object from the floor.
Begin standing with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart. Make sure your shoulders are stacked directly over your hips.
Bend your knees slightly. Then draw in your abdominal muscles and keep your back straight as you hinge forward at the hips. Keep your weight in your heels as you lower your chest towards the floor. Think about moving your hips backwards towards the wall behind. Then bring the hips forward to return to standing. Repeat.
