Alternate Name: -
START POSITIONEXECUTION
Set up on the machine by getting under the loaded bar with your feet close together and a bit forward so that you are in effect leaning into the Smith bar. This is your starting position.Unhook the safety mechanism and squat down all the way until your legs are bent past a 90-degree angle. Then, push hard with your legs and get back up to the starting position but don't lock out your knees completely; you should always keep tension in your legs for maximum movement efficiency.

Finally, repeat entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.

DODON'T

  • Don't extended and lock out your legs completely on the upward portion of the movement
