Use the ankle cuff cable attachment and attach it to the low cable pulley. Put a bench or box in front of you and place both hands on it. You want your body to look like that of a sprinter while taking off out of the blocks. Make sure you are far enough away from the cable so when your leg is straight, there is tension on it and the weight stacks do not touch. While keeping a flat back, ballistically drive the knee forward and up in front of your chest. Stay in control of the weight on the negative so it doesn't jerk your leg at the end. Focus on keeping the ankle cocked in dorsi flexion.
