Start by grabbing a barbell with palms up grip (like a bicep curl) that is slightly wider than shoulder width. Your stance should be approximately shoulder width apart with your knees slightly bent. Bend over at the waist slightly with the barbell in your hand and your arms naturally hanging down. Now, pull the bar up towards your waist until the barbell touches your belly button. Make sure to keep your elbows close to your body and keep your torso stationary throughout this movement. Hold the barbell at the top position and then return the barbell to the starting position.
Dorian Yates created this exercise and he is one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time. This movement is an effective mass builder for the back and biceps but must be done carefully and correctly.
