Seat on a flat bench with your back facing a high pulley.
Grasp the cable rope attachment with both hands (with the palms of the hands facing each other) and place your hands securely over both shoulders. Tip: Allow the weight to hyperextend the lower back slightly. This will be your starting position.
With the hips stationary, flex the waist so the elbows travel toward the hips. Breathe out as you perform this step.
As you inhale, go back to the initial position slowly.
Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
Variation: Exercise bands can be used for this exercise.
