Adjust the weight stack of the machine to your desired resistance to be used then sit comfortably with your back pressed firm against it’s back pad, then adjust the machine’s lever to fit your height -place the lever just above your feet. Your legs should be at a 90-degree angle between your lower and your upper legs. Your feet should be flexed and pointing forward, with your hands holding on to the machine’s side bars. This will be your starting position. 3. Use your quads muscles to fully extend your legs forward while ensuring that the rest of your body remains stationary on the seat. 4. Slowly bring your lower legs back down to their starting position while in full control and while keeping your quads muscles fully engaged and under constant tension. 5. Repeat this motion for the recommended amount of repetitions. CAUTION : NEVER use a heavy weight setting when performing this exercise to avoid getting any knees and/or quads injury. Do NOT swing or jerk the lever in anyway, but rather execute slow and controlled movements to gain the best out of this exercise. Make sure both your feet stay ‘flexed’ and pointing forward throughout the entire movement. STOP immediately if you felt any sharp knee pain.

Instructions

1. Stand tall with your feet placed at about hips width apart, and your heels slightly elevated by placing a small weight plate under each heel. Bring your hands together just below your chin level as you make a fist, with your elbows pointing out and your head facing forward. This will be your starting position. 2. While maintaining a straight & upright posture, begin to squat down by flexing your knees forward as you go down while keeping your quads muscles fully engaged. 3. After reaching a full squatting position, engage your quads muscles to bring your body all the way back up to a full-standing position. 4. Repeat this motion for the recommended amount of repetitions. CAUTION : STOP immediately if you felt any sharp knee and/or lower back pain. Make sure to always maintain a straight & upright torso while performing this exercise to force your quads muscles to handle most of the work load without putting any negative pressure on your lower back.

Your torso should remain flat and stationary on the machine throughout the entire movement. 4. Slowly bring yourself back to your starting position by flexing your knees forward (without moving your feet from their designated spots) while keeping your quads muscles fully engaged and under constant tension. 5. Repeat this motion for the recommended amount of repetitions.
