Side Bends, Cable Steps:

Step 1:
Take a low cable pulley handle in one hand to one side of the body.

Step 2:
Position feet shoulder width apart, stand upright and face forwards with a straight back, looking straight ahead.

Step 3:
Both hands should be by your sides. One hand will be holding the cable pulley handle and the other free.

Step 4:
At this point you should be supporting the resistance offered by the cable machine.

Step 5:
Gradually bend your body sideways over towards the cable controlling the resistance as you go.

Step 6:
Bend over until the hand holding the pulley is just above the knee joint or whatever feels comfortable to you. (Don't over extend)

Step 7:
Pause briefly and then bend the opposite way, this time transferring the resistance on to the opposite side of the body.

Step 8:
Only bend over as far as you feel comfortable or when the opposite hand is just above the opposite knee joint.
