Straight Arm Pulldowns

Pulldowns use similar muscles to a chin up. When training at home or in the outdoors it can be difficult to engage these muscle groups. Its important to include exercises for the lower trapezius muscle and rhomboids. Pulldown also stetch the pectoralis minor muscle.

Note: This exercise should never be performed on a swiss ball or bench as if you choose a weight that is too heavy you can dislocate the shoulder. Having the ground as a stop point will prevent this occurring. Always start with light weights and progress from there. Ensure your grip is at least shoulder width apart to further reduce the stress on the shoulder joint
