This exercise would fall into the category of horizontal pulling or rowing. And more rowing equals less shoulder problems, making this exercise a great shoulder saver. In order to perform this exercise:
- Attach a triceps’s rope to an adjustable pulley and adjust the height of the pulley so it is above eye level.
- Grip the rope with an externally rotated grip (palms facing each other ) and take a few steps back, getting into a split stance. It’s okay to have a bit of a backward lean in order to counteract the weight being used.
- Initiate the pulling movement by thinking about bring your shoulders back and down.
- Your elbows should go out and your hands should finish right around your ears.
