attachment (as shown) or foot
harness. Grasp lateral bars or other prop for support. Stand

45° forward. Allow lower leg attatched to cable to be pulled
- Keeping thigh stationary, extend lower leg forward until
leg is straight. Return by lowering lower leg down and back to

inflexibility may have difficulty fully extending knee if
knee is too high. In which case knee can be raised foward less
than 45°. Pectineus,
Adductor Longus, Adductor Brevis do not
contribute to hip stabilization since they are only involved
in initial range of hip flexion.
