Select desired weight. Adjust both pulleys to the lowest position. Place the hand grip attachments onto the pulley carabiners. Stand at the center of the cable cross machine, gripping each handle, with your legs staggered (left leg in front, right leg behind), abs engaged, and back and arms straight.
INHALE: Slowly bend at both knees to lower down towards the floor, not exceeding 90-degrees at the knees. EXHALE: Slowly straighten the knees to push back up to the start position to complete one rep. Repeat all reps on this side and then switch sides.
Keep a wide stance between your feet so you can lunge straight down without leaning forward over your front leg.
Muscles worked: Legs (quads, hamstrings, calves) and glutes
