Sit on seat with handlebar shaft between legs and feet on angled platforms to each side. Select resistance and push "quick start" or enter program. Grasp handle bars with a comfortably wide grip and bring them to an upright position.

Execution

Pull down and back with left arm while pushing up and forward with right arm, across body's center line. Complete stroke by pull down and back with right arm while pushing up and forward with left arm, across body's center line.

Comments

Maintain relatively erect posture throughout session. Increase rate of stepping if weight stack approaches lower position. Likewise, decrease rate of stepping if weight stack approaches upper position. Intensity can be altered by resistance and rate of stepping (steps per minute). To adjust resistance select resistance on weight stack. As alternative exercise, Push-pull movement can also be performed on apperatus.
