This is a great exercise for training in the horizontal plane, which is often neglected. For athletes, the horizontal plane is used in almost every single movement: Swinging, kicking, throwing, etc. Every daily activities often require functional core strength in this plane of motion as well.
To start this exercise, begin by attaching a rope to a single cable machine.
Raise the clip to a height slightly under your chest.
Grab the rope at each end, and walk a few steps away from the machine, creating tension on the cable.
Maintaining a wide stance, extend your arm’s out in front of your body.
Without rotating, bring the rope across your body engaging your core.
Rep Scheme: 3 sets x 10 reps each side.
