- Place a bench directly in front of the cable pulley, one step away from the pole. Connect the ankle wrap attachment and set the cable pulley at the same height as the bench. Wrap the attachment around your right ankle. Facing away from the cable pulley, lay in a prone position (face down) on a bench and grasp the end with both hands. Bring your feet towards your glutes until your knees are bent at approximately 90 degrees. Your knees should remain on the end of the bench. This is your starting position.
- While keeping your torso as still as possible, inhale and slowly extend your right leg until it is almost straight. You should feel tension in your hamstrings during this movement. Engage your glutes, exhale and bend your right leg to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions on each side.
