Face Pull

Exercise

How to perform the exercise

  1. Stand tall facing a pulley that has been adjusted to higher than head-height.
  2. Attach a rope or dual handles to the pulley and grab hold of each end with your palms facing your head.
  3. Engage your abs and pull the weight towards your face. Separate your hands as you pull.
  4. Note: If the machine isn’t equipped with foot plates, you can use barbell plates placed under the machine to increase your range of motion. Don’t “bounce” the weight up using momentum.

CAUTION: Pay special attention to using proper form while performing this exercise.
