1. Adjust the pulley to the lowest position, and select the appropriate resistance.

2. Stand equidistant from the two pulleys, facing the machine with your feet about shoulder width apart. Bring one foot forward so that you're in a split stance, then pick up the handles and allow your arms to dangle at your side. Slide back slightly so that the weight is off the stack.

3. Your front leg should be supporting most of your weight. Tighten your abdominals, and lean forward slightly. Your head, shoulders, hip, knee, and heel should be in a straight line.

4. With your arms fully extended, and your palms facing in towards your body, raise one arm over your head until it is in line with your torso. Your palm should still be facing inward, with your arm straight. Lower your arm before repeating the movement on the opposing side. Alternate sides until all repetitions are completed.

5. Switch leading legs halfway through the set, or if you are doing more than one set, switch on the next set.
