EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. SETUP: Attach a D-handle to a low pulleys and take an overhand-grip. Start with the handle in front of your shoulder, the cable travelling over your working arm. I like to step forward so there’s constant tension, and use a split-stance for support. As always, keep your chest puffed and shoulders pinned back for good posture.
  2. LIFT: Press the handles up diagonally, stopping just shy of lockout at the top. Lower the weight with control towards your shoulder.
  3. TIP: A little momentum is OK here, add a slight twist as you press.
