Starting Position: Stand in the center of the two weight stacks. Grasp the handle from each side and lean forward slightly.
Performing The Exercise: Keep the elbow bent slightly and bring the handles together in front of the body in a smooth, semi-circular motion, until the hands are together. Hold this position for a 2 count and then slowly let the weight back to the starting position and repeat.
Tips: A change in the body position will change the focus of the exercise. An exaggerated forward lean places more emphasis on the upper chest, an upright posture (or slight forward lean) has a more balanced focus, while a slight backward lean puts the stress more on the outer and lower chest.
