- With lever handles to sides, bend knees slightly and bend
over with back straight. Grasp wider handles.
- Pull lever handles up to sides. Return until arms are extended
and shoulders are stretched downward. Repeat.
- Torso should be kept as close to horizontal while allowing
for full arm extension. Knees are bent in effort to keep low
back straight (See Hamstring
Inflexibility). If low back becomes rounded due to tight
hamstrings, try bending knees more. Placing weight plates on
higher bar lightens resistance at top where strength lessens,
without compromising range of motion. See Gravity
Vectors to understand how this positioning, altering direction
of load, affects exercise resistance throughout movement (resistance
curve). Also see Lever Bent-over
