The athlete is in his athletic stance…soft in the knees, neutral spine, shoulders back and down. The handle is moved from the torso out to almost arms reach…basically we go all the way till just before lock out and back again. Straight out and straight back…JM has 50lbs of tension on the cable. They perform anything from 8-15 reps depending on ability and have a static hold in the extended position for 30 seconds at the end of each set.
Rather than telling you why I have them do it…go and try it yourself and come back and tell me why I do it.
