seat or bench in order to grasp both cable attachments. Place
feet on vertical platform. Position torso upright and slide hips
back so knees are slightly bent.
- Raise arms upward and outward to sides in Y configuration
while allowing elbows to partially bend. Pull back until elbows
are approximately lateral to each ear. Lower stirrups forward
and downward until arms are extended straight in front of body.

abduction and flexion.
external rotation may occur with elbows bent. Front Deltoid
assists shoulder flexion if upper arm angle is slightly high.
Rear Deltoid assists shoulder horizontal abduction if upper arm
angle is slightly low. Also see Cable
