Standing facing the high pulley, knees slightly bent and bust slightly bent forward. Grasp one end of the rope in each hand in a neutral grip.


Pull the rope up to your hips, letting your arms describe an arc of a circle. Keep your elbows slightly bent and close to your body. At the end of the movement, contract your back by squeezing your shoulders back, then return to the initial position.
