To begin, select appropriate seat height. Take hold of the handle, sit on seat and slide knees underneath pads, ensuring you are locked in (Figure 1).
Slowly contract the back muscles to lower the handles towards the shoulders. Lower handles until shoulder blades are fully contracted (Figure 2).
Ensure you maintain good spinal posture with feet flat on the floor for the entire lift. Slowly extend the elbows to return to the start position.
Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
