- Straddle seat with both levers positioned slightly above
horizontal. Grasp both lever ends with elbows slightly above
levers. Sit down near end of seat with torso leaning forward
slightly and slightly bent elbows pointing back.
- Push levers downward and together in hugging motion. Keep
shoulders internally rotated so elbows are pointed slightly upward
at top and out to sides at bottom. Return to starting position
until chest muscles are stretched. Repeat.
- Under greater resistance, positioning torso at lower angle
downward (by bending over at hips), will allow upper body weight
to counterbalance upward pull of cables, as opposed to stepping
forward and struggling with the backward pull of cables. Also
