Lay flat against the back pad with both feet on the floor and engage your abdominals to prevent your back from arching. Grasp the handles so that the heel of your palm is supporting the weight.
Press your arms straight keeping your elbows pointed to the ground. Pause, then slowly lower your arms to the starting position, stopping when your elbows have a 90 degree bend.
Some machines will seat you upright then have you push your hands slightly towards the ceiling. Others will have you lean back and press your hands more towards the wall. If your machine has a foot bar, step on it to press the handles forward to begin.
