Weekly Training Tip #4 - Face Pull

Targeted Muscles: Posterior Deltoids, Upper Back, and Rhomboids

The face pull is an open chain horizontal pulling movement that trains the athletes to pull their shoulder blades into scapular retraction depression and external rotation of the humerus. It’s a useful exercise for developing upper back strength and good posture. It can help bring balance back to the shoulder girdle as an antagonist movement to the bench press and other pressing exercises. It is suitable exercise for all skill levels and can be progressed by increasing band tension or the distance from the anchor point. It is a low stress movement that is best done at moderate to high reps ranges.
