Preparation

Position the leg roll on the lower part of the calf muscles. Adjust the range of motion to your need. Align the knees with the turning point of the machine. Positioned correctly, the roll will stay in the same place on your leg during the complete movement. Set the weight according to plan and lay down on the machine

Start Position

Move

Bend the legs in the knees

End Position

Pull the foot roll as far towards your buttocks as possible. Keep the abdominals engaged to prevent the pelvis from falling forward. Don't arch the lower back or lift up the buttocks

Move

Extend the legs again. Keep the muscles on the back of the upper thighs engaged to make the movement slow and controlled

Repeat

Back to the start position. Repeat for the planned number of times

Purpose

Build strong legs. Strength for leg pull, hip extension, and external rotation of the legs. Strengthen the back side of the legs, primarily the hamstrings. Balance muscles on the front of the thighs
