- Facing low pulley, kneel to attach cable belt or dip belt
around waist. Place hand(s) on ballet bar or machine (not on
guide rod!) for balance. Stand away from pulley with one leg
forward and opposite leg to rear.
- Squat down by flexing knee and hip of front leg. Allow heel
of rear foot to rise up while knee of rear leg bends slightly,
until it almost makes contact with floor. Return to original
straddle position by extending hip and knee of forward leg. Repeat.
Continue with legs in opposite position.
- Knees should point same direction as feet throughout movement.
Heel of rear foot can be kept elevated off floor throughout movement
as shown. Keep torso upright during squat; flexible
hip flexors are important. With feet further apart: Gluteus
Maximus is emphasized, Quadriceps are less emphasized. Also known
as Cable Lunge.
