Tips:

Start standing with feet hip-width apart holding the plate with both hands. With a slight bend in your knees, hinge at the hips to as close to vertical as possible. Try to keep your back flat like an ironing board. Extend your arms holding the plate just below your knees. Keeping your back flat, pull the plate to your belly button with your elbows close to your rib cage, squeezing your shoulder blades at the top of the movement. Slowly return the plate to the start positing of the pull. Repeat for prescribed reps.
