Setup instructions

1) Load the appropriate weight on the machine.

2) Sit back on the seat and place the front of your leg behind the pad - the lower leg should be angled behind you slightly. Hold the handles besides the seat to stabilise yourself.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly extend your leg out in front of you - have a slight bend in your knee at the endpoint.

2) Pause at the top and squeeze your thigh. Now, reverse the movement back to the starting position.

3) Repeat.
