- Remove all attachments and set the cable pulley at chest height. Stand centred between the cables, facing inwards, and grasp the left cable end in your right hand and the right cable end in your left hand in an overhand grip (palm facing down). Take a small step backwards and plant your feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees slightly and extend your arms to hold the cable ends directly in front of your chest. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. While maintaining a slight bend in your elbows, pull the cable ends outwards and backwards until your arms are inline with your shoulders. You should feel a small squeeze between your shoulder blades.
- Inhale. Gently draw the cable ends forwards and inwards to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
