Movement

1. Stand between the two cable columns, and adjust the cables until they are anchored at about chest height. Stand directly in front of the table columns with your feet together, and with a handle in each hand. Your arms should be fully extended, and the weight of the stack.

2. Draw up your spine and make sure that your head, shoulders, hips, and knees are in line. Tighten your abdominals to support your back and spine, and draw your shoulder blades back and down.

3. Lift up one foot. Once you have your balance, drive one elbow back and pull the handle in toward your chest, allowing your torso to rotate very slightly. Allow your arm to extend again and your torso to return to the center, and repeat the same movement on the other side. Perform the required number of repetitions, alternating sides.
