Attach a short bar that is angled down from the middle towards both ends (a pushdown bar) to an overhead pulley.

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and a slight bend in your knees about 1 foot from the pushdown bar and facing the stack; maintain the natural curve in your low back throughout the movement.

Grip the bar with your hands about 4-6 inches apart, with palms facing down towards the floor and bend your elbows slightly more than 90 degrees.

Push the bar down towards the floor until your elbows are straight, making sure to keep them close to your sides; keep your torso motionless throughout the movement.

Reverse the movement and return to the starting position.

The entire motion should be performed in a smooth, controlled manner that lasts about 3 seconds with the downward movement no faster than the upward.
