Position the chair such that the handles will come down just in front of your chest.
Sit with your feet on the floor and a slight arch in your lower back.
Grip the handles about 3-4 inches wider than shoulder width.
Lift the handles to a point directly above your shoulder joints.
Lower the handles to the upper part of your chest (Pectorals) with your upper arms moving directly out to the sides; touch your upper chest lightly.
Press the handles up to the starting position; do not lock your elbows at the top. The entire motion should be done in a smooth, controlled manner that lasts about 3 seconds, with the downward movement no faster than the upward.
