- Connect the rope attachment and set the cable pulley at the top of the pole. Turn to face away from the cable pulley. Standing a half-step away, plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. Place both hands on the rope with a neutral grip (palms facing inwards). Bend at both the hips and knees and press your glutes into the pole. Lean forward slightly and extend your elbows to bring the rope in front of your face. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. While keeping your shoulders as still as possible, bend your elbows to bring the ends of the rope back behind your head.
- Exhale. Using your triceps, extend your elbows and pull the rope forwards to return to the starting position, ensuring that you maintain the same bent-over position and that your shoulders, elbows and wrists remain in line with one another at all times. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
