This exercise is often performed with a bar. But the rope allows you to fully extend the arms as they come down by your sides. You may need to use a double rope to get that full extension. Lean slightly forward as you take the ropes. Keep the elbows tucked in to the sides. Extend the arms, and as your fists come to your sides, twist the pinkie finger slightly out for a full squeeze. Come slowly up with control.
