Preparation

Stand between lever handles to sides. Extend leg back and place top of foot on cross bar. Squat down and grasp handles to sides.

Execution

With chest high, lift lever by extending hips and knees to full extension. Return until knee of rear leg is almost in contact with floor. Repeat. Continue with opposite leg.

Position foot just slightly forward to keep equal distribution of force on hip and knee extensors. May also be referred to as Lever Bulgarian Squat.
