- Connect the EZ-bar attachment and set the cable pulley to the top of the pole. Turn to face the cable pulley. Standing one step away, plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. Place both hands on the bar with an overhand grip (palms facing down), ensuring that they are slightly wider than your body. Bend at both the hips and knees and lean forward to 45-degrees. While maintaining a slight bend in your elbows, extend your arms to bring the bar to head height. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. Without changing the angle at your elbow, pull the bar in towards your legs until your elbows are in close contact with the sides of your body.
- Inhale. Slowly lower the bar to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
