Stand with your feet about hip-width apart, your toes facing straight ahead. Bend down and grab the bar with an outside-shoulder-width, palms-down grip. Keep your lower back in its natural arch and drive your heels into the floor and push your hips forward, lifting the bar as you rise until it's in front of your thighs.
