INSTRUCTIONS

Prep

Connect a V-bar to a low pulley row machine. Place your feet on the platform and bend your knees very slightly.

Start

Lean forward, grab the V-bar and pull backwards till your back is vertical and your chest is sticking out. Your arms will be extended.

Movement

Keeping the torso locked vertically, pull the bar towards your body till it touches your abs. Pause for a moment.

Slowly let the bar go back to the start position.

End

Continue repeating till your set is complete. Clean equipment and re-rack as necessary.

TIPS

You can use various attachments(eg. bar, rope etc.) to vary the engagements and movements.

Don't let your torso move around for the sake of lifting heavier! Focus on form even if you hvae to lift lighter.
