Position yourself for this exercise by adjusting the glute-ham raise machine to fit your body. Place your feet against the foot plate that is located between the rollers (you should be lying face down at this point). Ensure that your knees are positioned slightly behind the pad. Begin at the bottom of the movement with your legs nearly straight. Execute the exercise by flexing the knees (ensure that you keep your back arched). Drive your toes into the foot plate as you perform this flexion. Ensure that your upper body remains straight as you continue the movement until your body is upright. Once reaching the upright position, return to the starting position under control. Repeat for the prescribed number of repetitions.
