Place a cable pulley at shoulder-height and attach a single handle. Stand with feet wider than shoulder-width apart so the pulley is to the right of the body, then reach across the body and grip the handle with both hands so the finger are laced together. Start with body weight centered on the right leg, then shift to the left leg by pushing off the ground with the right foot. At the same time keep the arms out straight while sweeping the handle from above the right shoulder to down by the left hip. Keep the back straight during the twist and move the chest and stomach together. At the bottom of the movement, body weight should be centered on the left hip and the hands in front of the left leg. To return to the starting position, push off the left foot into the floor and slowly sweep both hands back across the body to the starting position above the right shoulder.
