Execution

Lower body by bending arms back. If necessary, use minimal assistance of lower body to control descent, allowing knees to bend, keeping feet in contact with floor. When slight stretch is felt in chest or shoulders, push body up back up until arms are straight. Repeat with minimal assistance from legs.
