Standing in a split stance (one foot forward and one foot back with weight distributed evenly between the front foot and back toe), grasp the handles attached to a cable machine at shoulder height and brought to a starting position with the elbows directly out to the sides of the shoulders and at chest height. From this starting position, press the handles out in front of the body, extending the elbows as you push and bringing the handles to a position just in front of the chest. Keep the cables just above the elbows as you press. Make sure to engage the abdominals and exhale as you press. Inhale and slowly return the handles to their starting position.
