Affix a loop handle to the end of a floor pulley; this exercise will be done one shoulder at a time.
With your torso perpendicular to the 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 right thigh.
Maintaining about a 20 degree bend in your elbows and with your palm facing the floor throughout the movement, lift the handle straight out to the side, in front of your body and in a semicircular arc, until it reaches shoulder level.
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.
