|Utility:||Basic or Auxiliary|
Sit on seat facing twin pulley cables positioned shoulder height. Grasp stirrup cable attachment in each hand. Straighten lower back upright so arms and shoulders are positioned straight forward with cable taut. Point elbows outward.
Pull stirrups out to sides, keeping elbows at shoulder height until elbows travel slightly behind back. Allow wrists to follow elbows. Keep upper arms horizontal, perpendicular to trunk. Return until arms are extended and shoulders are stretched forward. Repeat.
The relatively powerful Latissimus Dorsi becomes involved:
- if upper arm travels closer than perpendicular to trunk
- if torso is positioned forward beyond vertical
