2. Firmly hold your chosen resistance directly above your chest with your arms fully extended

3. As you exhale, contract your abdominal muscles to bring both your head and shoulders in towards the centre of your body

4. Aim to bring your shoulder slightly off the floor and lead with your resistance, not with your head
