- Connect the ankle wrap attachment and set the cable pulley at the bottom of the pole. Wrap the attachment around one ankle. Facing away from the cable pulley, plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. Rest both hands on your hips. This is your starting position. Inhale and brace your core. Using the leg attached to the cable, exhale as you elevate your knee, until your upper leg is just above parallel to the floor, ensure that your hips remain level. Inhale and lower your leg to return to the starting position. You should feel the weight going through your quads. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side.
