Sit on seat with upper chest just above grips on lever. If available, push foot lever until handles are within grasping range. Grasp handles with wide oblique overhand grip and elbows out to sides. Release foot lever.

Execution

Press lever until arms are extended. Return weight until shoulders or chest feels slightly stretched. Repeat.

Comments

Some machines have foot levers to position handles in a more comfortable starting and ending position. If foot lever is available, engage it before releasing grips.
 
Range of motion will be compromised if grip is too wide. Also see exercise performed with parallel grip and exercise performed on alternative machine.
