- With lever handles to sides, bend knees slightly and bend
over with back straight. Grasp lower handles.
- Pull lever handles up to sides. Return until arms are extended
and shoulders are stretched downward. Repeat.
- Torso should be kept horizontal if flexibility allows. Knees
are bent in effort to keep low back straight (See Hamstring
Inflexibility). If low back becomes rounded due to tight
hamstrings, try bending knees more. Placing weight plates on
higher bar lightens resistance at top where strength lessens,
without compromising range of motion. See Gravity
Vectors to understand how this positioning, altering direction
of load, affects exercise resistance (resistance curve). Also
see wide grip form.
