Stirrup can be hung from one side of rack for easier access. Feet can be staggered and bent slightly (if needed) to allow arm pit to rest near top of pad. Back of upper arm should remain on pad throughout movement.

At bottom position, weight stack in use should not make contact with remaining weight stack.
