Method

Sit on a small bench placed between a high-pulley station and hold the D-handles attached to them, with a slight bend at the elbows.

Keep your lower back tight and bend forward slightly.

Bring the D-handles together so that they touch each other in front of your body.

Squeeze your chest and return to start position.
