    Kneel on the floor with both knees with your working side closer to an adjustable cable machine. Make sure to keep your chest up and torso erect. Grab a rope attachment from the lowest level on the machine with an overhand grip and extend arms so they are completely straight, making sure that your hands are shoulder-width apart.

    Tighten your abs, squeeze your glutes, using your torso to pull the rope up and across your body, toward your opposite shoulder. Return to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Maintain a slight bend in the elbows.
  • Avoid hyperextending the lower back. Keep your spine neutral throughout the entire movement.
