Stand with your back facing away from the machine and space your feet about shoulder-width apart. The cable should be between your legs. Bend down and pick up the bar with an overhand grip, hands shoulder-width apart. Keep a slight bend in your arms and knees and raise the handle up in front of your body until it is slightly higher than your shoulders. Lower the bar back down over the same path and continue until you reach muscular failure.
Tips: Keep a slight bend in your arms throughout the movement and make sure not to lift the handle much higher than your shoulders. Also make sure to loosen up your form a little bit and move naturally throughout the lift. You must still maintain complete control of the weights, but allowing yourself to move naturally will minimize lower back strain and will result in greater muscle stimulation.
