Sit on the machine and put your feet on the platform, a bit more than shoulder wide. The feet are turned outwards by a few degrees.

Lower the weight so much, that the knees form a right angle. Push immediately the platform up again, without any pause. When in the lower position, the knees point a bit outwards and the movement should be always fluid.


Comments for this exercise:
  • Fluid movements with no pauses at the top or the bottom
