    Dear Suneet,

    How about getting the cable from in between the legs, that is, stepping over the cable and bringing it dead center to the lateral line of your body, if you get what I mean.

    • Suneet Sebastian

      I wouldn’t advise that for two reasons:

      1) Getting them from in between your legs will result in a similar line of pull as taking them front in front of the body as your hands end up staying roughly in the same position at the bottom. Therefore bringing on the same problems as mentioned in the video.

      2) Taking the cables in between your legs will cause it to touch your legs on the inside at some points thereby disrupting a smooth, uninterrupted pull.
