This machine is primarily used to strengthen the muscles of the lower back, but also works the glutes and hamstrings.
You want to make sure you adjust the thigh pads so the tops of the pads come to just below the crease in your hips. This allows your body to hinge forward at the waist while providing you with as much support as possible. Place your feet fully on the platform and ensure your calves are supported by the calf pads.
Keeping a flat back, lower yourself down as low as possible while hinging at the hips. You should look like an upside-down V from the side. Maintaining the flat back, bring yourself back up until your body is in a straight line. Repeat.
