Use a dual-arm cable system with single handles set at the high position. Stand facing the machine.
About Billy Polson:

- Still in your squat, perform wide-grip pulldowns, pulling through your pinkies, and opening your chest as you pull down.
- Note: If you do not have access to a dual-arm cable system, you can also do this exercise squatting on the floor behind the seat of a seated lat pulldown machine and using a single wide grip bar.
