Straight Arm Pulldown

Straight Arm Pulldown

Preparation
Face high pulley and grasp revolving cable attachment (or rope attachment) with arm slightly bent. Place one foot slightly back and bend slightly over at the hip. Keep chest high, shoulders back, and a slight arch in the lower back.

Execution
With elbows fixed approximately 30°, pull cable attachment down until upper arms are to the sides of the body. Return attachment to eye level while maintaining the fixed elbow position. Repeat.

Comments
Fix elbows approximately 30° throughout exercise. The motion is a semi-circular arc from your eye level to your waist. At the bottom of the motion make sure your chest is sticking out and your shoulders are back to better target the muscles of the back.
