  • Your palm should be facing forward, and your left hand on your hip.
  • Keep your back straight and elbow to hand perpendicular to the floor.
  • Begin to extend your right arm straight above your head until your arm is straight.
  • Keep your upper body stationary during the entire movement.
  • Then follow the same line coming back in a controlled fashion.

Plank SH Razor Kickbacks

  • Place the pulley at the lowest setting, or the door stop 6” above the floor, select the resistance to be used and attach the Razor to the cable or band.
  • Get down in the push up, or plank position with your head facing the point of attachment and grab the Razor with your palm facing your feet.
  • Put a slight bend on the elbow that is not holding the Razor in order to prevent stress at the biceps tendon and to get low enough to keep your working arm, elbow to shoulder parallel with the ground for your starting position (for a beginner, or after muscle fatigue you can hold yourself up with the forearm of the non-working arm, instead of using your hand with a slight angle).
  • While keeping the elbow in one spot, and pushing through the floor, fully extend your arm back until it is completely straight.
  • Then follow the same line coming back in a controlled fashion.
  • One complete set is when both arms have been worked.
  • Repeat the movement for the recommended amount of repetitions.

  • Continue down until you sit on the bench or chair, releasing tension from legs for only a second.
  • Then reengage your legs and follow the same line when you stand back up for one complete repetition pushing through the floor with the heel of your foot mainly as you straighten the legs again and go back to the starting position.
