- Stand to side of medium height rotating pulley. Place hand
shoulder height or slightly lower on support bar with arm straight.
Place foot nearest supporting arm forward with knee slightly
bent and opposite foot back. Grasp cable stirrup with one hand
allowing shoulder to be pulled forward under weight on cable.
- Pull cable attachment to side of torso while pulling shoulder
back, arching spine, and pushing chest forward. Return until
arm is extended and shoulder is pulled forward. Repeat. Continue
with opposite arm.
- Stirrup handle should be behind supporting bar. Few pulley
units have vertical bar (for supporting hand) far enough back
from the pulley to allow for full range of motion and adequate
pulley rotation to allow it to be aligned with line of pull.
If pulley unit does not allow for this configuration, consider
placing sturdy prop (for supporting hand) in front of pulley,
far enough back to allow for full range of motion.
