Sit facing a cable machine.  Grab a cable in one hand with your palm facing in and arm extended overhead.  Pull the cable down, moving your elbow to your side, contracting your shoulder blades together.  Hold and then extend your arm back to the starting position.  Repeat with the same arm.

When performing a seated, one-arm cable pulldown exercise, you want to first choose the weight that you want to use. Next, sit facing the cable machine and hold the cable in one hand with your palm facing the side of your body. Extended your arm overhead and begin pulling the cable down until your elbow reaches your side. Be sure to squeeze your shoulder blades together and make sure that you do not shrug your shoulders or arch your back. Hold this position and then extend your arm back up to the start position. Repeat on the same arm for the desired number of repetitions and then switch sides.
