Instead of ‘just moving,’ let’s make sure we mindfully connect with the muscle via effective technique 💪🏼…
(Key points below vid)
Drive the elbows down and back, tight alongside the body.
The hands are just hooks.
The elbows lead.
2. Range of motion
Stretch right out at the bottom for a bigger range of motion.
But, make sure to stretch and not simply ‘hang’ on the shoulder joint.
Tension is lost from the back muscles when hanging.
SUPER HARD SQUEEEEZE pause at the top.
Really drive those elbows back and down and feel the lat muscles contracting hard.
Close your eyes and visualise the muscles powerfully pulling the arms back.
… and remember…
As always, slow and controlled tempo. Technique mastery preceding hard work.
Let’s get to it!
