Attach loop handles to two overhead cables and stand at the midpoint between them with your feet about shoulder width apart.

Grab the cables with your palms facing the floor and your arms extended up toward the pulleys; bend your elbows about 20-30 degrees and maintain this angle throughout the movement.

Lean your torso forward and maintain that torso angle throughout the movement.

Pull the handles down on a semicircular arc until they meet about 6 inches in front of your hips.

Return the handles to the starting position along the same arc.

The entire motion should be done in a smooth, controlled manner that lasts about 3 seconds, with the downward movement no faster than the upward.
