Grasp a straight bar cable attachment that is attached to a low pulley with a pronated grip that is slightly less than shoulder width.
Your arms should be extended with a slight bend at the elbows and your back should be straight.
Use your side shoulders to lift the cable bar as you exhale. The bar should be close to the body as you move it up. Continue to lift it until it nearly touches your chin.
Lower the bar back down slowly to the starting position. Inhale as you perform this portion of the movement.
Variations: This exercise can also be performed using a straight or e-z bar and dumbbells.
