How to do the Cable Squats
To perform Cable Squats stand upright with the straight bar
in a curled position. This isn't the most comfortable exercise but it will help you complete a squat on a universal machine. Slowly lower your body into a squat position with your knees never extending past your toes, your back straight and thighs parallel with the floor. Now explode upwards to complete the repitition. Repeat. Spotter Information:
Stand behind the athlete performing the cable squats to make sure they are performing the squats properly.
