Instructions

Preparation

Lie supine on padded platform. Place hands on bars above head or to sides. Place one foot on platform and other foot on floor below platform.

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 machine 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. Unique apparatus is designed and built by Tracey Cheuvront.
