✅聽Why? Because it mimics the exact motion used in a pull up, therefore: if you get and strong at doing pull downs & you鈥檒l be able to create a strong base to be able to do pull ups.
Just like any back exercises, shoulderblades play MAJOR importance. Actually in most exercises but with an emphasis for the ones involving the back!

🚨聽Anyway, let’s get to the tutorial. Shall we?

✅聽Once gripped the bar at a medium width (which is the best width you can pick for hypertrophy purposes) let your arms straight, there鈥檚 no tension. You鈥檙e sitting, with your quads locked under the pad with your arms straight.

1) At this point you want to retract your shoulderblades back & down together: your lats are engaged and ready. As you can notice, when you do so, your chest naturally comes up as a response, through thoracic extension. If it doesn鈥檛 it means you鈥檙e not doing it correctly. Try doing this step UNTIL you can see that your chest is coming up. This is actually the most crucial part.

2) The pull;
Start to pull the bar down WHILE keeping your shoulderblades down. Nothing moves except for your arms, which are driven by your elbows, towards your back, sticking your sternum up. The bar should touch your upper chest/clavicle area. You will lean back a little but that’s completely fine.
