0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Since Pull-Ups can be quite hard, consider this exercise as your assistant in conquering pull-ups. This is a great exercise to start the back workout. There are two versions: Front Pulldown and Behind Neck Pulldown. Here’s how it’s done:

- Sit on the Lat Machine with knees supported so you won’t lift yourself off the seat when pulling down.
- Grab the bar wide with an overhand grip, wider from shoulder width.
- With a straight back, pull the bar towards your chest and stop a little lower below the chin.
- Return to initial position with straight arms and start the other repletion.
- Do 3 sets of 12, 10 and 8 repetitions. A normal level of difficulty to start is half your weight. Increase the level after each set with 10 kg (22lb).

The body needs to lean back a little bit for the pull to be successful, but not too much; it’s heavy on the lower back. Keep a straight back with chest forward during the set. Exhale as you pulldown, inhale when returning to initial position.

For Behind Neck Pulldown, instead of a front pulldown towards the chest, pull backwards behind the neck and lean forward a bit.

    If you are playing all kinds of sports – especially basketball or volleyball, you will agree with me that their ability to jump can really make a difference. Because of this, sportsmen and women are never satisfied with their vertical jumps, so we always want to increase a few centimeters.
