Instructions

Preparation

Climb up steps to top of machine. Lie supine on horizontal padded platform with shoulders against pad. Place feet equally spaced and slightly high on platform. Grip handles above shoulder pads.

Execution

Push lever platform away by extending hips and knees until knees are straight. Return lever platform by flexing hips and knees until knees are just short of complete flexion or until hips are completely flexed. Repeat.

Comments

Adjust shoulder pads to allow full range of motion without forcing hips to rise at waist. Keep knees pointed same directions as feet. Push with both heel and forefoot and do not allow heels to raise off of platform. Placing feet slightly high on platform emphasize Gluteus Maximus. Placing feet slightly lower on platform emphasize Quadriceps.
