Standing Lat Pull Down
- HOW: Get a band set-up anchored above your head. Holding onto the ends of the band while facing the anchor, perform a small hip hinge followed by driving your elbows towards your back pockets. Think about squeezing your shoulders blade together and back while letting your elbows bend and your hands come towards you. Hold the end position for a moment, slowly return to starting position and repeat
- FEEL: You should feel the muscles behind your shoulders and in between as well as below your shoulder blades working. You may also feel your biceps working as you begin to fatigue. Really think about squeezing your shoulder blades together and down.
- COMPENSATION: Do not shrug your shoulders, do not lose the hip hinge position, do not arch your back, do not compensate at your wrists
