Technique of execution V SQUAT MACHINE
Step # 1.
Approach the simulator and equip it with the necessary weight. Slightly sit under it, leaning the back of the trunk to the back of the simulator. Take your shoulders under shoulder pads simulator. Place your feet on the width of the shoulders and on the middle of the platform. Put the feet parallel to each other or slightly dilute themselves. Look forward and bend in the lower back.
Step # 2.
Unlock the locking mechanisms of the simulator – remove the retaining stoppers. The legs must be straight, slightly bent so as not to strain the knee joint. This is the starting position for the start.
Step # 3.
Start slowly lowering with the platform downwards, bending the knees. Squat down until the angle of the upper body of the leg with the calves is less than 90 degrees, i.e. sit down just below the parallel of the floor. Breathe in when lowering.
Step # 4.
Having reached the bottom point, push off the heels from the platform and squeeze the weight smoothly upwards. Straighten your legs and return to the starting position. Repeat the specified number of times.
