  • So today is a little bit of a guide for #workoutwednesday on the Lat. Pulldown! ...If you are unsure of how to use this piece of equipment or want some refinement on your technique, read on!

This machine is great if used correctly, the  latissimus dorsi is the primary muscle being worked here(think under your arm area and on to your back), the biceps (top front area of your arm) also muscles in the forearm act as helpers and several of the rotator cuff muscles in the shoulder area assist here too. Alot is being working here so as with anything, form is key on these to progress safely.

When doing this exercise, various coaching points which may assist are:
•Appropriately selecting your weight and lowering the leg pads accordingly before sitting down
•Making sure your feet are planted to the floor when seated and that you’re legs are under the lower pad with it being comfortable and close to your thighs “locking” you in position so not to come out the seat when pulling down
•To establish a grip width, put your arms up when seated, aim for around roughly the same width as your shoulders or just a little wider than this with an over hand grip on the handles
•Before starting the movement/exercise, sit directly under the bars leaning back slightly to approx. 30degrees or so ensuring you keep the chest up and your body in position during the exercise - ensure you keep a firm grip, pull the levers down to roughly around jaw height aiming to keep the forearms/wrists roughly verticle whilst keeping the shoulders/scapulas back and chest up, allow the bars back up in a controlled manner until you have straight arms, repeating this until your set is complete.

  • Day 9 of #hipnoticing with @cyogalife ➡️ #scissors or #ekspadakoundiyasana2 in #ekapadasirsasana or #legbehindhead variant

I only able to lift the back leg with knee bend at this moment ..still unable to straighten the back legs. The leg behind the head is just like tons of weight on my neck. -

Continue to engage the neck to make sure the leg isn't coming out and encourage a proper hip rotation. Once the first leg is in place (leg behind head), kneel up, plant palms shoulders width, bend elbows like you do for chaturanga & lean forward so your face will end up very close to the ground. Activate the low belt (navel + pelvic floor + lower back) & notice how the back leg become weightless, lift it. First bend the back knee, then eventually straighten. Remember to push back with the head, lift face away from the floor (to stop the leg from moving). It will be easier to open the hips slightly to the side instead of keeping them squared, but you have to keep the hips level eventually.
