- Sit on machine with back on padded support. Place feet on
individual platforms. Grasp handles to sides. Push both platforms
away by extending knees and hips so knees are straight. Release
dock lever and grasp handles to sides.
- Lower one platform toward body by bending knee and hip until
knees are just short of complete flexion or until hips are completely
flexed. Push platform away by extending knee and hip. Repeat
with opposite leg. Continue by alternating between sides.
- Adjust safety brace and back support to accommodate near
full range of motion without forcing hips to bend at waist. Wide
stance may allow for deeper range of motion. Keep knees pointed
same directions as feet. Do not allow heels to raise off of platform,
pushing with both heel and forefoot. Placing feet slightly high
on platform emphasize Gluteus Maximus. Placing feet slightly
lower on platform emphasize Quadriceps. See exercise performed
