Affix a loop handle to the end of a floor pulley; this exercise will be done one shoulder at a time.
With the side of your body facing the weight stack, stand with your left foot about 1-2 feet from the pulley and your feet about shoulder width apart.
Grab the loop handle in your right hand and allow it to come to rest at the middle of your left thigh, with your palm facing your body.
Maintaining about a 20 degree bend in your elbows, pull the handle across your body to a shoulder level point halfway between the front and side of your body.
Keep your torso still during the entire movement.
The entire motion should be done in a smooth, controlled manner that lasts about 4 seconds, with the downward movement no faster than the upward.
After completing your reps for one side, reverse sides and repeat.
