- Squat down to place shoulders under padded lever. Place feet
shoulder width apart directly under shoulders.
- Lift lever up by extending knees and hips until legs are
straight. Lower lever by bending
hips back while allowing knees to bend forward, keeping back
straight and knees pointed same direction as feet. Descend until
thighs are just past parallel to floor. Return and repeat.
- Lever height should be adjusted to accommodate full range
allowing hips to descend same height or slightly lower than knees.
Keep head facing forward, back straight and feet flat on floor;
equal distribution of weight through forefoot and heel. Knees
should point same direction as feet throughout movement. See
