Thanks! Great info that all of us should know!
Trying hard to maintain a knowledge takeaway without at least illustrations or a video here.
Good need-to-know information, thanks.
Article definitely needs an animation or real-life video attached so the proper form can be visualized. Like squats and deadlifts I'm sure this exercise is improperly done all the time.
These are my first machine to go to, on the Universal and I pyramid the weight. I notice people doing the pull down dangerously close to their teeth and fast. So they are jerking up at the top givng the shoulder girdle a shock.
Thanks for the info
I feel somewhat foolish in saying this, but - could we have a few photos to demonstrate the steps?
One of my favorite machines. No lore back fat. :)
This machine sounds like the one that I use at the gym. I have had other people to try and help me to do it correctly. I remember them telling me to lean back slightly. I usually do it with 70 lbs. weight. I will decrease this amount until I learn the proper form. Thanks, Coach Nicole.
I’ve seen people sit up straight as well as lean back slightly, always wondered what was right. I will Len back a bit from now on. And for those wanting photos, I’ve found good info on line
Great information thanks!
