Coach's Tips

You can focus more on the stimulation as you do it with only one hand. This workout can be done better if you execute it as if you are using a strength from your armpits.

How to

Starting Position

1. Stand facing the cable machine, about an arm's length away. 2. Reach out and grab the handle of the cable with one hand. 3. Place your feet shoulder-width apart, and slightly bend your knees. 4. Keeping your back straight, lean slightly forward from the hips.

Proper Form

1. Begin the exercise by pulling the handle of the cable down towards your side. 2. Keep your elbow tucked in close to your body as you pull. 3. When the handle is close to your side, pause for a moment, then slowly return to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. As you pull the handle down, exhale. 2. When you release the handle and return to the starting position, inhale.


1. Make sure to keep your back straight and your shoulders down. 2. Do not lean too far back as you pull the handle down, as this can put stress on your lower back. 3. Do not swing the handle down, keep your movements controlled and slow. 4. If you feel any pain in your back, stop the exercise and consult a doctor.
