The muscles of your posterior chain provide the power behind many of the most important skills in sports; consider them your "go" muscles.

Bend at your hips and knees and grab the bar using an overhand grip that's just beyond shoulder width. Keeping your lower back naturally arched, pull your torso back and up, squeeze your glutes, thrust your hips forward, and stand up with the barbell.
