Lever Hack Squat

Instructions

Preparation

Lie supine on back pad with shoulders under shoulder pad. Place feet on platform. Extend hips and knees and release lever.

Execution

Flex hips and knees to descend until knees are just short of complete flexion. Raise sled by extending knees and hips. Repeat.

Comments

If insufficient hip flexibility forces the pelvis to pull away from the back pad at the lower portions of the movement, only lower the sled just short of spinal articulation. Keep knees pointed same directions as feet. Do not allow heels to raise off of platform, pushing with both heel and forefoot. Also see Lever Hack Squat on alternative model.
