- Squat down to place shoulders under padded lever. Place feet
shoulder width apart slightly in front of shoulders.
- Raise lever up by extending knees and hips until legs are
straight. Lower lever by bending knees forward slightly while
allowing hips to bend back behind, 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
