1. In an upright position, with the cord in front of you, start with feet shoulder width apart with the cord attached around a pole or to a door
2. Start with the arms straight, parallel to the floor
3. Begin motion by squeezing shoulder blades together and following with arms pulling back, elbows in to your sides and hold
4. Make sure to keep the chest out and shoulders down and back throughout the range of motion
5. Keeping the shoulder blades together, extend the arms back to the starting position
