EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Place both feet behind the pad of the machine.
  2. Drive the pad up by squeezing your thighs HARD. Grip the handles for extra support.
  3. TIP: We are using the CLUSTER METHOD on this one. Load the machine with a weight you’d expect to hit x20 good reps with (seriously, don’t go heavy because this will break you!). The goal is to get to x25 reps, but we will be placing a 5 count pause every five reps. During the pause we keep the weight at the start poisition but ensure that we are still under tension (don’t re-rack the machine). I’ve seen this break many, many people in the gym. Enjoy!
