- Connect the ankle wrap attachment and set the cable pulley at the bottom of the pole. Wrap the attachment around your right ankle. Turn to face away from the cable pulley. Standing one step away, plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and brace your core. Keeping your left leg firmly planted, exhale and flex your right leg forwards directly in front of your body, ensuring that your foot remains flexed and you maintain an upright position. Inhale and slowly lower your right leg to return to the starting position. You should feel tension in your right quad and your left glute during this movement.
