Preparation

Execution

Push platform away by extending hip and knee. Return by bending leg until knee or hip is just short of complete flexion. Repeat. Continue with opposite leg.

Comments

Adjust back support back to accommodate near full range of motion without forcing pelvis to bend at waist. Keep knee pointed same direction as foot. Do not allow heel to raise off of platform, pushing with both heel and forefoot.
