Iso Pulldown Back
Exercise on HammerStrength Machine
This is a variation of the
back exercise but this exercise is done on the
HammerStrength and the movement is diagonal vs linear (straight down).
This allows you to vary your workout and work out the back muscles from
a different angle, a more wider angle and with a different plane of
Method of Performance
Set the seat of the
machine and the top pad to the desired height. I like to leave the top
pad up and knock it into position with my knee when I am seated and
ready to do the exercise (see beginning of video).
Grasping the handles
from the bottom (at the top of the movement), pull them down close to
your sides as far as they can go. Release and let the handles go as far
up as you can without locking your elbows or straightening your arms to
the top of the movement. Repeat for desired number of repetitions.
Remember to breathe.
Inhale as you pull down the handles and exhale as you release back
upwards the handles.
Do about 4-5 sets of
12 repetitions each.
For the first set, I
like to do a light set to warm up my back muscles for this exercise.
