Stand and face the machine with feet slightly apart; grip the bar with an overhand grip, arms extended and shoulder-width apart; fix the back and contract the abdominal core:

• Inhale and bring the bar to the thighs, keeping the arms extended (elbows can be slightly bent).

• Exhale at the end of the movement.

This exercise, which works the latissimus dorsi, strengthens the teres major and the long head of the triceps, which stabilizes the arm-trunk hinge.

Comment: Many swim coaches use this exercise to develop a powerful crawl stroke.
