- Connect the ankle wrap attachment and set the cable pulley at the bottom of the pole. Wrap the attachment around your left ankle. Turn to face the cable pulley. Standing one step away, plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. Hinge forward from your hips so that your chest is parallel to (in line with) the floor and rest both hands on the pole at head height. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. Keeping your right leg firmly planted, extend your left leg backwards and upwards to hip height, ensuring that your foot remains flexed and your toes point down towards the floor.
- Inhale. Slowly lower your left leg to return to the starting position. Complete half of the specified number of repetitions on the same side before completing the remaining repetitions on the other side.
