How do I perform a single leg cable pulldown alternate arms?

Stand on one leg with your foot positioned straight ahead and knee slightly bent.  Grab a cable in one hand with your palm facing in and arm extended overhead.  Pull the cable down, moving your elbow to your sides, contracting your shoulder blades. Hold and then extend your arm back to the starting position repeat with other arm.

When performing a single leg, alternating arm cable pulldown, you want to first choose a weight. Next, stand on one leg making sure that your foot is pointed forward, your glutes are squeezed and your abs are drawn-in. Be sure that your other foot that is off the ground remains close -but not touching- the other leg you are standing on. With a cable in each hand, begin with your arms extended overhead. Next, pull the cable down with one arm to the side of your body, keeping your elbow to your side. Squeeze your shoulder blades together and be sure not to shrug your shoulders or arch your back. Pause at the bottom and then repeat on the other arm. Keep alternating arms for the desired number of repetitions.
