Place a cable pulley at about waist height and attach a rope handle. Grip one end of the rope in each hand so that the thumbs are close to the end of the rope. Face the cable pulley with the right foot forward and the left foot back, keeping the feet hip-width apart. Sink back onto the right hip and keep the back straight and tall while pulling the hands back to the chest. Push the ball of the right foot into the ground while turning to the left (away from the machine) so that the left foot is forward. With the back to the machine, push the hands away from the body until the arms are straight. Pause at the end of the movement before slowly bringing hands back to the chest and turning back to face the machine to return the weight to its original starting position.
