Adjust the cable pulley (or tubing) to the lowest position. Standing perpendicular to the pulley, hook your feet in the foot pad and keeping your leg straight, extend your leg up as high as possible, being sure to keep your buttocks down throughout the movement.

Reverse the movement and return to the starting position. Repeat on the other side.

The entire motion should be performed in a smooth, controlled manner that lasts about 3 seconds with the downward movement no faster than the upward.

I have a weider crossbow and am having a difficult time with substitutions for some of the lower body work outs. i.e. calves and leg curls. Any suggestions?
