So here’s how to do it. At your gym, lower the cable to the second or third lowest notch so when the cable e is extended it is at shoulder level. Select a weight that provides a bit of resistance, but not too heavy. It’s not so much about the weight as it is about the move itself.
Grab the handle and scooch your self back a few feet to create distance from the machine. The further back the more of a challenge.
From a plank position begin to row while maintaining your plank position. The objective is to maintain a super stable body and the only thing moving is the side pulling the cable.
Your lat is moving the cable not your arm. Visualize your lat / scap area doing the work. Avoid over-rotating your body at any point. Instead keep your frontal body facing the floor at all times including your head. Do 10 per side and switch.
So let’s make sure you get green checks with these key points:
• Keep your core engaged the entire move.
• Keep your frontal body facing the floor.
• Your lat is doing the pull, not your arm.
• Feet together or hip-width.
Start with light weight and 10 reps per side. As you get stronger, up the weight or reps.
