Most gyms will have some sort of ankle attachment for the cable machine so that you can simple strap the attachment around your ankle, set the weight and begin exercising. However, if you don't have an ankle attachment-don't worry because you can still do the exact same exercise using one of the handle attachments, sliding your fit in and flexing your foot while kicking back to keep tension on the band.
When performing this exercise and to get the most out of it you want to make sure that you are not swinging the weight or using momentum to move the cable weight. Instead, you want to plant the foot that is not attached to the cable on the ground with a slightly bent knee to stabilize you, brace your core, and in a controlled movement push the cable away behind you pushing through your heel and flexing your glutes then slowly bringing it back to start.
You can perform this in addition to your normal leg workout for extra accessory work to build your glutes and hamstrings by performing 3-4 sets of 10-15 repetitions on each leg slowly building up the weight.
