Lie down on the machine facing forward by placing your quads on the pads and then placing your feet on the designated platform. Hold your arms either across your chest or hold your hands behind your head. Bend at the waist and lower your torso down until you feel a thorough stretch in your hamstrings. Then, raise your torso back to the starting position by squeezing your low back and hamstrings. Squeeze your glutes at the top position.

This movement can be made more difficult by holding a weight behind your head or across your chest.
