Straight Arm Pull-Down

Straight Arm Pull-Down

  1. Attach the band to a high door anchor. Stand or kneel a couple feet back from the door. Lean forward from the hip, keeping your back straight; with your arms extended up in front of you grab the handles at medium tension. This will be your starting position.
  2. Keeping your arms straight, extend the shoulder to pull the handles down to your thighs.
  3. Pause at the bottom of the motion, squeezing your lats.
  4. Return to the starting position.
