- Lie on declined back pad with hips under weighted sled. Place
feet on platform. Raise weight by extending hips and knees. Release
dock levers and grasp handles to sides.
- Lower sled by flexing hips and knees until knees are just
short of complete flexion or just before hips raise up from pad.
Return by extending knees and hips. Repeat.
- If available, re-engage support lever in extended position
before dismounting. Flexible
hip flexion is required for fuller range of motion through
knee. Lower weight just short of hips, leaving back support.
Keep knees pointed same directions as feet. Do not allow heels
to raise off of platform, pushing with both heel and forefoot,
or center of feet if platform is shorter than length of feet.
