How to: Face Pull
Primary Muscles Used:Lats, Rhomboids, Traps
Exercise Families:Horizontal Pull
- Connect the rope attachment and set the cable pulley at the top of the pole. Turn to face the cable pulley and place both hands on the rope with an overhand grip (palms facing down). Standing one step away, plant your right foot on the floor and take a small step backward with your left foot into a split stance, ensuring that your feet are slightly further than shoulder-width apart. Lean back slightly and extend your elbows to bring the rope in front of your face. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. Bend your elbows outwards and, using the muscles in your shoulders and back, bring the rope in towards your face until your hands are by your ears. Avoid “shrugging” your shoulders by squeezing your shoulder blades down and back.
- Inhale. Extend your elbows to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
